AGUAS DE GIPUZKOA S.A. CAG

CAG

CAG's brief description
CAG is a private company with public capital created in 1992 for the integral management and exploitation of the whole water cycle for member towns and cities of Gipuzkoa, in the North of Spain. With around 200 employees and an annual budget of 30 million Euros, CAG manages the water for 300.000 people, treating 118.000 m3 per day between all its plants. CAG's facilities include 7 water dams, 6 water treatment plants and 12 waste water treatment plants
CAG has always inspired saving and a rationale use of water. In this sense, CAG has been involved in innovative projects that can make more efficient and greener its processes (i.e. reduction of mud through ozone; optimization of design and operation biomass systems, optimization of waste water treatment…).

CAG's interests in the project
CAG is interested in data management technologies which allow optimising its plants, improving the operation and effluent quality, and reducing the energy consumption and treatment costs. Therefore, the main objective of CAG in this project is the implementation and validation of the ADAM tool and the Advanced Monitoring System in one of its facilities, the Mekolalde WWTPs.

Partner's role in the project
The involvement of an agency that manages wastewater treatment plants seems crucial for the project as all results developed in this project needs to be tested in urban wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). In this sense, the main role of CAG in the project is the collaboration during the definition of the DIAMOND requirements (WP2) and the validation of the project results installed in the Mekolalde WWTP (WP7).
