    Telde Desalination Plant, Phase II

    The second phase of the Telde sea water desalination plant (Municipality of Telde, Las Palmas, Gran Canaria Island) produces 16,000 m3 of drinking water per day, which is routed to the reservoir of the Salinetas seawater desalination plant, or to the buffer reservoir of Barranco de Silva. The facility will be located in the Municipality of Telde next to the area known as Punta de Silva.

    The seawater intake will be located near the desalination plant. Seawater intake will be through a battery of 6 wells, each of which will contain a submersible pump capable of elevating a flow of 260 m3/h to 60 m of head. The seawater will be pumped to the plant through a 600-mm diameter FRP pipe. The desalination plant consists of the following units: Seawater intake, desalination plant, reservoir, desalinated water discharge, disposal of filter backwash water and rejects.
