SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Today, cities represent 3 % of the planet's surface and concentrate more than 50 % of the population. A figure that will rise to 70 % by 2050. In addition, cities generate more than 80 % of the world's gross domestic product (GDP).
In addition to facilitating access to essential services for life - such as energy and water - ACCIONA contributes to making cities places of productive well-being in which to live, favouring people's socio-economic development.
ACCIONA has signed the contract to build and operate an energy from waste plant in the East Tullos area of Aberdeen, in Scotland. Ness Energy project will have an installed capacity of 14 MW and it will be able to process 150,000 tons per year. The completion of the construction is planned for 2022.
ACCIONA will lead the project using its own in-house construction skills to build the plant, and it will rely on the expertise of Indaver for the operation of the plant for a 20 year period.
This energy from waste plant will take non-recyclable waste from Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, and Moray Councils and treat it cleanly and completely conforming to the latest strict European standards for emissions.
