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 Ministry of Public Services of Trinidad and Tobago, through the institution Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA), has awarded a consortium headed by ACCIONA the contract for the construction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant and its network of sewers in the city of San Fernando, the second biggest on the island of Trinidad. The project, known as the ‘San Fernando complex’, will have an estimated duration of three years.
ACCIONA (70%) - in a consortium with the Atlatec group (30%) – will carry out the design, construction and start-up of the treatment plant and its operation and maintenance for one year.
The facility will have 16.3 kilometers of sewers, 12.5 of them in the form of micro-tunnels, with 11,964 service connections and 7 pumping stations with flow rates of 600 m3/d to 17,500 m3/d. The project also includes the dismantling and redevelopment of pumping stations and the existing wastewater treatment plant.
