Spanish infrastructure group Ferrovial, through subsidiary PLW Waterworks, has won three water treatment projects in Texas together worth $279m.
Georgetown has picked PLW to undertake the largest project in the city’s history, in which PLW will build a $175m treatment plant to supply drinking water to one of the fastest-growing population areas in the state.
The scope of work includes construction and commissioning of the structures for the new plant, a new water intake, and a pumping station on South Lake. The project is scheduled for completion in 2026, Ferrovial said.
The City of San Angelo has also selected PLW Waterworks, a subsidiary of Webber and Cadagua, to upgrade the Hickory groundwater treatment plant. Scheduled for completion in 2024, the project will expand the infrastructure’s capacity by 30 million litres a day to more than 45 million litres.
The contract value is $53m and the work includes building a triplex low-head pump station, two new precast concrete clear wells and the expansion of the oxidation contractor system.
The third contract consists of building the Manadas Creek wastewater treatment plant in Laredo for $51m. PLW will build a wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 18 million litres a day as well as a gravity outfall pipe to carry the treated water to Manadas Creek Tributary 2.
Ferrovial said the projects contribute to its “Horizon 24” plan, which identifies the US as a core market.
