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.
ACCIONA will build a waste water treatment plant capable of processing 400 litres per second, potentially catering for a population of up to 197,000 (estimated for 2038, the project design horizon).
The sewer system will have more than 17.6 kilometres of sewer mains (to receive waste water from district sewers and transport it to the plant), 1.3 km of discharge sewers (for pumping waste water after treatment) and 4 pumping stations. The contract also includes designing the city’s entire sewer network and household connections.
The plant will be equipped with an automated treatment control and sewer monitoring system and a laboratory to monitor water quality. All these installations, along with the pumping stations, will be fitted with odour control systems.
