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 consortium consisting of ACCIONA (50%) and VINCI Construction Grands Projets (50% share and lead contractor) won the contract for the design-build portion of phase 1 for the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe wastewater treatment plant, in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) which will have a peak capacity of 480,000 cubic metres per day.
The design-build portion of the contract is set to take five years for completion, including the starting-up process and acceptance of works. The project also calls for operating and maintaining the facility for a five-year period.
The contract, which is financed by the World Bank, is worth €200 million and was signed in Ho Chi Minh City on 8 March 2019. This wastewater treatment plant project will include a pumping station, biological treatment, disinfection, sludge treatment, odour treatment as well as connection to the city’s sewage system.
The plant, which will treat wastewater from the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Basin, will be an essential part of Ho Chi Minh City’s second environmental plan and will benefit more than a million residents.
The project will include the hiring of up to 800 local labourers at peak periods. Also, nearly 25,000 hours of training are planned to ensure everyone’s safety at the worksite as well as the completed structure’s quality at delivery.
