Modernising Sector I of the Zaidín (Huesca) Irrigation Community


The Zaidín irrigation community (430 registered users and over 7700 hectares to cover) has received the collaboration of Grupo Industrial Vicente Canales for the production of various special parts within the sector 1 modernisation project.

We have produced the necessary parts for the different pipe types included in the project - concrete, PVC and PRFV.

These parts are being installed to distribute water to the community. It is expected that some 50 tons of machine-welded steel will finally be manufactured by VICAN, which will be supplied to the contractor in charge of executing the distribution network.

Once again, from Grupo Industrial Vicente Canales we would like to thank you for the opportunity to participate in this project with the quality and efficiency that are our trademark.



Section IV of the Segarra-Garrigues Canal

Vicente Canales, S.A., is currently working on Section IV of the Segarra - Garrigues Canal. This section will supply water all the way to the intake in sector 7, covering a total irrigation area of 39,066 hectares (running from sectors 1 to 7). The action is some 21 kilometres in length and affects the municipalities of Tárrega, Verdú, San Martí de Riucorb and Maldá. Work starts at kilometre 41+ 530 on the Canal and finishes at kilometre 62 + 530, running Northeast to Southwest.20150114 122210

A flow measuring up to 20 m will run from the source to the so-called Almenara de Corb; from there to the end, the maximum flow reduces to 15 m. Two irrigation inlets to use the flow for irrigation will be placed in this section: Segarra-Garrigues Canal inlet no. 6, at kilometre 53, expected to have a flow of 5.5 m; and inlet no. 7 at kilometre 61 + 600, with a flow of 4 m.

The work currently being undertaken is for the following points:

- A new siphon with helical welded steel piping measuring 2540 mm in diameter and some 860 m long, between kilometres 59 + 392 and 60 + 252. This action is aimed at saving the River Corb and avoiding major impact on the countryside, aside from achieving a considerable reduction in costs compared with the initially planned construction of an aqueduct.

- Coupling and assembly of 160 metres of 1200 diameter piping.

- Production and assembly of the 4 steel transitions required to connect the pipe to the canal either side of the siphon.

The Segarra-Garrigues Canal project is in line with the A.G.U.A. Programme (Action for the Management and Use of Water) from the Ministry of the Environment, Marine and Rural Affairs. This programme favours actions to obtain water resources from new sources, ensuring the availability of water and permitting sustainable development.

Stainless steel pumping station


Vican has successfully manufactured a stainless steel pumping station for Aigües in Barcelona.

This pumping station is for supplying from a water treatment plant in Sant Joan Despí.

This project is 24 tons weight and several pieces with collectors from 1000 to 1200 mm diameter. It is completely manufactured in 316 stainless steel.

For more information regarding our VICAN pumping stations, you can visit our VICAN product section -> pumping stations.

Desalination plant in the Sadara petrochemical complex.

compuerta ataguiaVican has participated in the manufacturing of 4 penstocks for a desalination plant in the petrochemical Sadara in Saudi Arabia.

The new plant that will supply desalinated water to this petrochemical complex in Jubail has a capacity of 178.000 m3 a day.

Solvents and glues will be produced for automotive and packaging industry and the water supplied will be used in this huge complex with two cooling towers and boilers water supply.

It has been used a special paint treatment suitable for materials in contact with sea water.

232 million euros correspond with the design and construction of the project and the remaining 69 million euros with the 10-year concession for operating it. This period may be renewable for 20 years.
