ACCIONA is one of the founding and sponsoring members of the European Australian Business Council and forms part of the Spanish-Australian Industry and Commerce Chamber.


 


Since then, ACCIONA has worked on over 20 construction, water and energy projects in the country.


 


In 2009 ACCIONA completed the construction of Waubra Wind Farm, which meets the energy needs of approximately 120,000 households each year and avoids the emissions of approximately 650,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. ACCIONA had built its first wind farm (Cathedral Rocks) in 2007, and since then has participated in many other wind energy projects in the country.


 


The Adelaide Desalination Plant has eliminated water restrictions in South Australia and improved the diversity and reliability of water supplies to business and communities in South Australia. On 2009 ACCIONA was awarded its first water project in the country: Mundaring Drinking Water Treatment Plant, one of ACCIONA’s finest accomplishments in water treatment which provides water for more than 100,000 people.


 


The Royalla PV plant is the first solar installation built by ACCIONA in Australia, acting as a contractor for the development company FRV. The farm can generate clean energy equivalent to the consumption of around 4,500 homes in the area, avoiding the emission of some 37,000 metric tons of CO2 from coal-fired power stations per year.

 
 


Infrastructure Partnerships Australia bestows the prestigious “Project of the Year 2015” award to ACCIONA-led consortium for “changing Australia’s approach to tunnelling projects”.


 


ACCIONA supported the launch of National Geographic’s new episodes of “Years of Living Dangerously” in Australia. The series, from executive producers James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, unites Hollywood celebrities along with a cast of high profile journalists highlight the problems caused by global warming and the available solutions to tackle it.


 


The deal with the Australian engineering and construction group seeks to build upon ACCIONA Construction and Geotech’s complementary businesses, and to create a platform for growth that can respond to the sizeable demand for infrastructure in the Australian market.


 


ACCIONA brought to Australia its innovative electric rally car, the first ever zero-emissions vehicle to complete the Dakar Rally, to show how renewable energy can be competitive even in the toughest conditions.
