INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
The pumping system consists of a 102-m trench containing two 1,200-mm cast-iron pipes that convey the water to the inlet of the land outfall. At this point, a large load breaking inspection chamber is installed, such that from this point, the water flows by gravity through the outfall, which has a length of 7,344 m and an internal diameter of 3 m. The tunnel excavation was performed with a tunnel boring machine (TBM).
The upper part of the chamber will be developed to create a recreational area for urban use.
