Ensenada desalination plant

Developed by the Spanish firm GS Inima Environment group (OHL Medio Ambiente), Ayesa was responsible for the project’s works management.

The complex, which has received investment of 39 million dollars, comprises a desalination plant that takes water directly from the sea, an area for pre-treatment and the discharging of brine into the ocean, a storage tank, a pumping plant and lines to connect to Ensenada’s water distribution system.

The purpose of this action is to satisfy the current water shortage in Baja California and meet the expected demand, which considers an annual increase of 2.5%.

It will also contribute to reducing the drop in the pumping levels of the groundwater used to supply the area, intended for agricultural irrigation and which currently provide all the drinking water that comes to the city.

Ensenada desalination plant is the second plant of this type built in the country and that of greatest capacity in Latin America, processing 250 litres per second (l/s). Additionally, the installations have been prepared for future expansion, to double the plant’s potential to 500 l/s.
