Integrated Spanish EPC player Acciona Group has announced three O&M contract wins between 1–17 September 2014, bolstering its position in the global water sector. The awards include a desalination plant in Oman, a wastewater treatment plant in Italy, and a water supply pumping station with wastewater treatment plant in Spain.

These wins follow its larger announcement on 22 July 2014 that it was awarded a US$40 million water main design-build-operate (DBO) order for New Cairo, Egypt from the Construction Authority for Potable Water and Wastewater. The deal’s infrastructure includes 40-kilometers of water pipeline, three pumping stations, and a 500,000 m3/day water treatment plant for this fast-growing city on the periphery of Cairo that will also require reliable electricity supply.
