The Marbella Town Hall has started the energy rehabilitation works of the Salduba pool of the Antonio Serrano Lima sports complex, with a budget of 2.1 million euros and an execution period of between 8 and 10 months, to transform it into a “more efficient, functional and attractive” facility, as reported by the mayor of the branch Diego Lopez.
The municipal manager has highlighted together with the mayor of Sports, Lisando Vieytes, that the Works will be completed in the first quarter of 2024and which contemplate the placement of a new roof with a glazing system, which allows the maintenance of the interior temperature and prevents leaks and the entrance of hot and cold air, and the regrowth of the glass to house approved competitions.

The remaining 20 percent of the budget is assumed by the City Council, as explained by the councilor, who stressed that “the importance of this intervention lies not only in the comprehensive reform, which was necessary, but also in the fact that after the same will be used aerothermal energy and solar panels for photovoltaic energy.
In this way, the building It will not require any type of external energy to be able to supply or heat the water in the changing rooms or the pool itself”, indicated López, who has advanced that, on the other hand, an initiative will also be carried out jointly with the Cleaning delegation for the reuse of the Surplus water from the recycling system in cleaning work.
