This project consists of measures aimed to reduce the carbon footprint of the Water Services Corporation.

Pumping huge volumes of water all around the Maltese Islands needs a lot of electrical energy. This not only costs money but it also produces CO2. This project has already reduced frictional energy losses in pipes due to the upgraded pipeline between the Ta’ Bakkja Pumping Station and the Ta’ Qali Reservoir, the transfer pipeline between Ta’ Qali and Naxxar Reservoirs and the transfer pipeline between Hondoq Booster and Ta’ Cenc Reservoir in Gozo.

A pipeline was also laid from Ta’ Qali Reservoir to supply the central-eastern area of Malta. This area is now being fed by gravity rather than by direct pumping which will save pumping costs and reduce the effects of water cuts due to power cuts.
