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 project includes the design and construction, operation, rehabilitation and financing of a 75,000 liter/day drinking water treatment plant and a 33,000 liter/day water storage reservoir in Saint John, in the northeastern province of New Brunswick, which will serve approximately 70,000 people.
It also includes improvements to the pumping stations and the water storage system, as well as the replacement of 22.4 kilometers of pipelines and the rehabilitation of another 19.3 kilometers.
The work, which is part of a project - Safe, Clean Drinking Water Project (SCDWP) - that Saint John is developing to ensure access to quality drinking water for homes and businesses in the area.
The city's plans are to build a new water treatment plant with a processing capacity of 75,000 liters per day and three 11 million liter storage reservoirs, and to implement 13 other improvements to the municipal water transmission systems. In addition to these projects, the development of aquifer extraction sites on the western fringe of the city is planned. This drinking water project will provide Saint John residents with cleaner, safer drinking water and allow the city to minimize maintenance costs.
