INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
The tramway network is made up of two double track lines, except in one section where there is a single track (Palça de les Glòries). The Trambesós network has a total of 28 stations, 11 of which link to metro and suburban rail stations.
A building has been constructed to house its facilities. The line is primarily at grade, and is completely integrated with Barcelona's public transportation network. The fleet consists of eighteen 32.5-m long carriages with a capacity for 230 passengers.
Nearly the entire line runs through the downtown core of Barcelona, Spain's second-largest city and one of the most densely populated cities in Europe.
The project involves the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance as well as the provision of the rolling stock. Payments are based on an availability mechanism until it is turned back over in 2032. The project is currently operational, since construction was completed in 2008.
