We promote the use of desalinated water in agriculture

We promote the use of desalinated water for agriculture and innovate to bring solutions to the primary sector that improve agricultural production with more efficient water usage.

In Spain, 23% of the national desalinated water production is allocated to agriculture. Sacyr has been one of the drivers of this usage, with desalination plants that have contributed to the significant growth of agriculture in Murcia and Almeria. 

Currently, Sacyr is one of the top 10 largest producers of desalinated water in the world.  Our facilities supply water to 14.6 million people across the globe, positioning ourselves as one of the main producers of desalinated water in Spain. Thanks to our technology and innovation, many small farmers can successfully carry out such an important activity.

Among other projects, Sacyr Water manages desalination plants in Águilas-Guadalentín (Murcia), Alcudia (Mallorca), Alicante, and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Innovation at the service of agriculture

To demonstrate the advantages of using desalinated water in agriculture, we have developed several innovation projects. 

One of the most prominent is Live Deseacrop, with which we increase the production and quality of tomatoes in hydroponic and soilless crops using desalinated water. This technology substantially reduces water consumption. Through the SOS Agua XXI project, we also study tech solutions that allow us to optimize the use of this scarce resource in agriculture.
