The water business of ACCIONA provides solutions with minimal installation costs that optimise wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) processes.
These optimise efficiency for future operation and maintenance, and deal with the wide range of challenges that must be confronted in wastewater treatment such as populations of very different sizes, domestic urban waters or high industrial loads, highly-seasonal populations, plants located in areas with limited available space or high visual and/or environmental impact, as well as different discharge levels.
The water business of ACCIONA benefits from the experience of its facilities in small populations as well as in large cities such as Barcelona, Santander, Leon, Huelva, Malaga and Almeria in Spain, Aveiro and Mutela in Portugal and Tangiers in Morocco.
The result is the construction of more than 300 wastewater purification plants, with a total capacity of more than 13.5 million m3/day, equivalent to a population of more than 55 million.
The contract includes the construction and subsequent operation of the world's largest waste water treatment plant, located in Atotonilco, in the state of Hidalgo.
This is the largest wastewater treatment plant in Sardinia.
Treatment of waters from Alcorcón and Leganés in Madrid, which flow into the Butarque sewer.
The plant will treat wastewater from the municipalities of Medellín and Bello. The plant will benefit about 4 million inhabitants.
