Update on irrigation pilot plant

Update on irrigation pilot plant

During the month of April, the installation work and start up tests for our irrigation pilot plant has been completed.  This pilot will be testing the generation of micro-hydro energy at the Cortijo Calonge farm in Palma del Río (Spain).

The winning company, Tecnoturbines, has been finalizing the installation of the entire monitoring system so that the technology is available and ready to start generating clean and sustainable energy before the imminent irrigation season begins.

This pilot plant, with which the economic, social and environmental impact of the recovery of hydroelectric energy in irrigation networks can be evaluated, is the only one focused on irrigation networks. Two other hydroelectric facilities are also planned that will serve as a pilot experience in the industrial sector, in Portugal, and drinking water supply, in France.
