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 project, which the company will carry out with Brookfield Financial & North American Contractors (NAC), involves the renewal of part of the water distribution system in the city (the largest city in the Province of New Brunswick and the oldest in the country) and consists of a drinking water plant with a capacity of 75 million liters per day and storage capacity of 33 million liters.
The contract also covers improvements to the existing water distribution, disinfection and pumping systems, including the replacement of 20 kilometers of piping and a further 10 kilometers of pipe rehabilitation.
The project is part of the Safe, Clean Drinking Water Project (SCDWP) that Saint John is carrying out to guarantee access to quality drinking water for homes and businesses in the area.
