Modernisation of irrigation water infrastructures of the Acequia Mayor of Molina
Modernisation of irrigation water infrastructures of the Vega Alta Ojos-Contraparada
Scope of action: Cuenca Hidrográfica del Segura
Total investments: 18,500,000 €
The purposes of the modernisation of the Acequia Mayor of Molina are to enable the implantation of modern localised irrigation techniques to promote water savings and obtain the necessary regulation against the volatility of the resources of the basin. Due to the need for a proper operation of the basin, a volumetric control is established, the regulatory capacity within the irrigation area is extended to mitigate potential failures in the supply from the Segura river, the losses are reduced by the new pipelines, the facilities are optimised to reduce operating costs, and an automation and remote control system is implemented for all installations.
