The agreement has been reached during a meeting at the Monterrey offices in Mexico, where both companies have expressed its growing interest in increasing their exposition to renewable energies and in reducing the carbon footprint.
The Hydroregen turbine will use a pressure drop of 70 metres of the pipe steel which transports the water from the deposit to the city in order to generate energy. The turbine, which is currently in the execution phase, will be installed in parallel with the existent pressure reducing valve, generating electric power of 135 kW.
This solution will enable a part of the hydraulic resource which was previously wasted to be transformed into green energy for domestic or industrial use.
