CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 35 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The objective of the Bella Vista WWTP is to contribute to the improvement of both the health and quality of life of ESSAP users in Greater Asunción, as well as the quality of the Paraguay River, through the treatment of urban wastewater.
In addition, it also contributes to environmental conditions in terms of the quality of the Paraguay River by treating urban wastewater collected in the sanitary sewer system and disposing of it through a sub-fluvial discharge into the river.
The plant is located on a plot of 23.7 ha of surface, northeast of the central part of the city of Asunción.
This plant allows progress to be made in the sanitation program, the first phase of which has already been awarded to ACCIONA. The company was chosen to rehabilitate and expand the sanitary sewerage networks in the Varadero and Bella Vista neighborhood basins, covering 52 kilometers, and the construction of their respective pretreatment plants. This first phase is completed with the construction of the Florencia Villamayor collector.
The Bella Vista Basin Wastewater Treatment Plant and Sub-ﬂuvial Outfall Construction Sub-project is part of the Water and Sanitation Sector Modernization Project (PMSAS).
