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 consortium integrated with ACCIONA, Prime Metro BMD Corporation (PrimeBMD) and Santa Clara International was awarded by Manila Water with the contract of the design and construction of the East Bay 2 drinking water treatment plant (DWTP). The project is located in the city of Pakil, 70 kilometers southeast of the metropolitan area of Manila, capital of the Philippines.
The contract includes a pretreatment phase, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and an 18,000m³ storage tank for brine treatment.
The plant will draw water from Laguna Bay, the largest lake in the Philippines and the second largest inland freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. This will ensure clean, good-tasting and healthy water.
- Client: Manila Water
- Location: Pakil, La Laguna, Philippines
- Population served: 2,000,000 inhabitants
- Capacity: 200,000 m³/day
One of the main features of ACCIONA's plants in the Philippines is the advanced treatment of raw water (water that has not gone through any treatment to date). The new plant represents a significant step forward towards providing drinking water to an increasingly larger proportion of the population. Many homes in the Philippines do not have access to drinking water despite the abundance of water resources in the country.
This is the third contract that ACCIONA has won in the Philippines, after the Putatan DWTP, with a capacity of 150,000m³/day in operation since 2020, and the Laguna Lake DWTP (also with 150,000m³/day), currently under construction. ACCIONA also opened its new commercial office in Manila in 2019.
