SPANISH energy firm Acciona has secured two six-year water treatment contracts worth €11 million in the Balearic Islands.
The first contract, worth €4.5 million covers most of southern Mallorca including the upkeep of wastewater treatment plants in Llucmajor and Felanitx, while the second, worth €6.5 million covers northern Menorca.
Acciona is looking to greatly expand its operations on the islands, taking control of the sewers from the Balearic Islands Water Agency (Abaqua).
The deal also includes the Llucmajor plant which supplies water to dozens of golf clubs in Mallorca.
Currently, Acciona provides water to three million people in 70 municipalities across Spain and with the deal starting early December that figure is likely to dramatically increase.
