First project of the Water business in Western Australia
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 844 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 2.3 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 74 % 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 Helena Water consortium, comprising ACCIONA, TRILITY, and Aberdeen Global Infrastructure Partners, won the tender to design, build and operate the Mundaring drinking water treatment plant in the Perth area (Western Australia) for a 35 year period.
The plant supplies the Goldfields and Agricultural Water System (G&AWS), including Kalgoorlie in the state of Western Australia. Its initial capacity will be 165,000 m3 per day, with a maximum capacity of around 240,000 m3 per day.
This is a PPP (Public Private Partnership) project in the state of Western Australia.
