Murcia has become the epicenter of water innovation and technology in Spain

Agentes del ecosistema de I+D+i transfer to empresarios del sector del agua de todo el país conocimiento y soluciones aplicadas, en especial, a los grupos electrobombas.

More than a hundred businessmen and professionals linked to the water sector, who come from different cities in Spain, are participating in the “I Jornadas Técnicas nacionales de Grupos Eléctricos Mergibles”, which are taking place today and tomorrow in the facilities of the Regional Federation of Empresarios del Metal de Murcia (FREMM). En este espacio, se muestra las technologías más avanzadas en extraction de este recurso natural del subsuelo.

The technological developments in electric bomb groups and their application in the sectors related to agriculture, mining activities and in the environmental environment are made known by experts from public institutions, researchers, universities and supply companies, as well as manufacturers and private company

The value of water and the technological level of the regional companies in this field, being international referents in the development of I+D+i, were highlighted at the opening of the day, from the hand of the head of the Oficina de Planificación Hydrológica de la Confederación Hidrográfica del Segura, Jesús García Martínez.

The president of FREMM, Alfonso Hernández, also participated in this act; the president of the Asociación de Empresas de Tecnologías del Agua de la Región de Murcia (ATECARM), integrante de esta federation, Antonio Bernal; the president of the Club del Agua Subterranea (CAS), Juan Antonio López Geta, and the general secretary of metal, Andrés Sánchez.

Durante el evento, the experts will transfer to the assistants their expertise in the field of water and energy, especially in the area of ​​innovative technology and submersible electric power groups of high efficiency and sustainability.


The days are complemented with an exhibition at the Centro de Negocios FREMM on state-of-the-art equipment in water technology. Se puede ver una nueva gama de productos en bomba submergible de diferentes materiales y de alta eficiencia energetice. Also centrifugal pumps vertical multi-stage with motor coupled in inverted position for the continuous submersible pump of clean water, as well as a submersible motor of high energy efficiency and greater versatility in performance

Likewise, se muestra variados services of repair and installation of bombs and engineering for the design of installations, detection of breakdowns and energy efficiency.

Las jornadas se closing mañana con un acto que estará a charge del consejero de Agua y Agricultura.

The event is organized by ATECARM and FREMM, together with CAS, as well as having the patronage of the companies Juan Azcue-Indar, Likitech, EMUSE, AFORMHIDRO and eKoaKua, as well as the collaboration of the Ministerio para la Transformación Ecológica y el Reto Demográfico, a través de la Confederación Hidrográfica del Segura, y del Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación, mediate el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Región de Murcia, la Asociación Española de Usuarios de Aguas Subterraneas y la Fundación Instituto Euromediterraneo del Agua.

Water technology sector

The Association of Water Technology ATECARM is the youngest group of FREMM, it was created at the beginning of 2022 and has 24 associated companies. Según su presidente, and 70% de sus clientes agriculturists precisan sacar agua y hacerlo, además, de forma optima y efficiente.

El conjunto de empresas que operan en el sector de tecnologia del agua en la Región de Murcia facturan unos 1.000 milliones per año y emplea a unos 5.000 trabajadores. It is an area that hosts societies grouped in four types of operations, consisting of desalination, transvase, reutilization of water and connection of underground water, which make up the mix of water resources in the Region of Murcia.

The needs of agricultural producers before the semi-desert climate in the Spanish Surest is the engine that has converted regional water technology companies and international referents in I+D+i into the global market, highlighted Antonio Bernal.
