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 built the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WTP) at Ul, located in the municipality of Oliveira de Azeméis in north-west Portugal, around 48 kilometres from Porto.
The project, representing an investment of 2.5 million euros, has a planned daily volume of 1,654 m3 and will provide a service to a population equivalent of 13,260 people.
ACCIONA, through its Water Division, undertook the entire supply and assembly of the equipment and the electricity system, as well as the automation and start-up of the plant.
The new WTP plant at Ul has a compact pre-treatment system: biological reactor with prolonged aeration; secondary settling; thickening of sludge by gravity and dehydration and deodorization.
The Portuguese company Indaqua Oliveira de Azeméis has operated and managed the public water supply and collection systems and wastewater treatment of the municipality of Oliveira de Azeméis since 2014.
