Water consumption reduced by 15% in one year


In addition to its renewable energy production installations, the Burgos plant in Spain installed a wastewater recycling system in 2015.

Once it has been treated, the high-quality water is reused for the plant’s main requirements (cooling, washing of equipment, etc.).

This facility achieved optimal use in 2016: the plant reduced its total consumption by 15% as compared to 2015, and by nearly half compared to 2005.

To achieve the 2020 target, the plant proposes to develop the recycling facility in order to further increase its ability to reuse water.
