Finally, the last part of the jigsaw is ready to be put in place. In order for the new desalination plant at Torrevieja to work it needs electricity and lots of it.
The 220 Kilowatts of electricity will be supplied by Iberdrola via a high voltage cable from San Miguel de Salinas. The cost of installing this cable and substation is 7.3 million Euros. Once this is in place they can start tests on the desalination plant before it begins purification up to its 120 hm3 capacity.
