Equivalent Population


ACCIONA was awared by The Bilbao City Council for the management, cleaning, maintenance and operation of the city's municipal water sanitation and sewerage network. The extendable three-year contract will benefit 350,000 residents.

The contract covers customer support work, cleaning and inspection of the pipe network, sewage management, maintenance of pumping systems and technical support, among other things, as well as various emergency works and repairs. For this, the company will use state-of-the-art equipment and zero-emission vehicles.

In line with its goal of digitalizing the entire water cycle, the company will introduce various 4.0 technologies such as the use of a 'digital twin', consisting of a virtual replica of the sewerage network, which will allow it to test and analyze the different innovations to be implemented efficiently and safely. Likewise, through event analysis with predictive algorithms, it will be possible to draw up action plans that will enable a better management of water resources.
Among other advances, the company will introduce geographic information systems (GIS) and implement its own GOTA CIA platform, integrated into municipal warning systems, which will help locate network assets and available technical resources on a map, thus ensuring a much more efficient operation and maintenance service.
