The new contract signed for the construction of a water supply network project in the area of Aegiali Amorgos is particularly important. SMILI S.A. was selected through a national competition launched by the Municipality of Amorgos, with a study budget of €1,678,000 excluding VAT, within the framework of the special program for the granting of investment loans to Local Government Organizations (local authorities), "Filodimos".
Through the program "Filodimos", the upgrading of the water network will be carried out by strengthening the island's infrastructure, as it includes solving the problem of leaks in order to optimize the use of water resources and improve the quality and adequacy of water reserves.
The project involves the construction of three water pumping stations, a valve station and 22 km and 652 meters of depressive pipeline in the settlements of Aegiali bay, Tholarion beach and Potamos. The water supply network can transport to the existing reservoirs 30.20 cubic meters of drinking water per hour. A remote control and remote control system has been provided for the possibility of remote monitoring and control for immediate notification and detection of faults in the mains or pumping stations.
The aim of the project is to ensure the quality and adequacy of drinking water and reduce leaks, for the development of the island, covering the needs of residents and tourists in water.
The start date for operations is set in the first quarter of 2020.
