Naval Station Rota Spain


Water Conservation Case Study: Naval Station Rota Spain – ESPC Water Conservation ScopE – Rota Spain


Naval Station Rota is strategically located near the Strait of Gibraltar and at the halfway point between the United States and Southwest Asia. Because of this ideal location, the base is able to provide invaluable support to both US Sixth Fleet units in the Mediterranean and to USAF Air Mobility Command units transiting to Germany and Southwest Asia. The Base and its tenant commands are located within the boundaries of the 6,100-acre Spanish “Base Naval de Rota”.
