'Area Limpia' Bogotá: sustainable, innovative, and efficient street cleaning

We improve the quality of service for more than 1.5 million residents

Servicios

23/06/2022

Our colleagues at Sacyr Services carry out the most sustainable and efficient urban cleaning (street cleaning, waste collection and maintenance of trees and green spaces in the area) in Special Service Area No. 5 of Bogotá (Colombia).

We contribute with our experience and innovation in the Colombian capital with the installation of underground waste containers, which are a safer, more hygienic alternative to conventional bins, and we also incorporate nearly 100 sustainable vehicles to improve the quality of service to the citizenry.

These nearly 100 new units have greater collection capacity, which translates into a reduction of collection times and service improvement. The new fleet of vehicles has state-of-the-art technology and reduces emissions of polluting gases.

Underground waste containers

Underground waste containers provide a safer, more hygienic, and comfortable storage for citizens. Waste collection is done via side loading garbage trucks, through a hydraulic mechanism that rises after activating a remote control from inside the vehicle.

Thanks to moving the garbage containers underground and waterproofing, all the material disposed will be protected from sun-exposure. In addition, due to its mailbox shape on the surface, it hinders the access to dumpster divers, of street dwellers and recyclers, a situation that dissuades users from separating trash directly at the container.

Belfast Grand Central Station: a new, modern, and sustainable transport hub

The new transport hub will have 26 bus stops and 8 train platforms that will improve connections with the rest of the region

Belfast Transport Hub

Sacyr Infraestructuras

23/06/2022

In a joint venture with Farrans, we are to develop the main construction works of the new Belfast Grand Central Station Interchange in Belfast (Northern Ireland) within 4 years.

The new transport hub will replace the current Europa bus center and Great Victoria Street train station in an eight-hectare site in Weavers Cross, a new neighborhood in the center of the city that will contribute to the regeneration of that area.

This facility will be a multimodal transport hub with 26 bus stops, 8 train platforms, as well as bike lanes that will foster sustainable mobility in the city and enhance connectivity in the region. It will also have design and construction elements to promote efficient mobility, respect for the environment and energy conservation.

This project, awarded by Translink, the public transport services operator in Northern Ireland will bring numerous social and collaborative initiatives with the community to regenerate the area and it will create 500 jobs during construction.

For Duane McCreadie, Project director of Farrans-Sacyr JV on the project "Belfast Transport Hub will be crucial in shaping the future of the city and promoting sustainable transport. Social value will play a significant role during construction, and we will be engaging closely with community groups, charities and schools to create local employment, training, and apprenticeship opportunities to deliver a positive and lasting impact".

A3, we improve connections between Naples and Salerno (Italy)

This highway connects the Vesuvius coast with the ports of Naples and Salerno and with the rest of the highways in the region
  • Italy

Sacyr Concesiones

23/06/2022

The A3 highway is a very relevant road in the south of Naples, since it connects the Vesuvius coast along 52 kilometers passing through Naples, Pompei, and Salerno.

The SIS consortium (Sacyr, 49%; Fininc, 51%) is in charge of the operation and maintenance of this brownfield project for a 25-year term, over which we are to perform construction works to modernize and improve the safety of several sections of the highway for €390 million.

The concession of the highway, for a period of 25 years, has an expected portfolio of €2.7 billion. The project has a limited demand risk, thanks to a mechanism that offsets variations in traffic revenue through rates.

The highway has an average daily traffic (ADT) rate of nearly 90,000 vehicles and an annual total of 1.69 million vehicles per kilometer (vehicles-kilometers traveled).

Financing

This investment was financed with a €518 million bond with maturity in 2045. The operation received a BBB rating by rating agency Fitch. To finance this P3 project, the consortium also has a bank loan for €90 million subscribed with Banco BPM.

Benefiting from this waste treatment cycle

A project designed for sustainability 

The plant operates in accordance with strict standards based on the circular economy. It has a composting system capable of treating the organic waste generated by nearby populations and producing up to 50,000 tons of quality compost a year. This treatment cycle fulfills the targets of the Australian waste management plan: to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill and reduce greenhouse gas emissions such as methane. 

Furthermore, the entire composting process is carried out inside the treatment hangar, which is fully closed and has a highly efficient and reliable deodorization system. This way, nearby populations are not affected in any way.

Thanks to this Plant, CO₂ emissions will be cut by more than 80,000 tons. It will also cut down on emissions that would be generated by landfill by 85%, the equivalent to removing 13,900 cars from circulation.

Devoted to cutting-edge technologies

This plant uses some of the most advanced technology available for the treatment of organic waste. The custom technology design combines the mechanical treatment system developed by the German company Stadler with the biological treatment system developed by the Dutch company Waste Treatment Technologies (WTT). 

The expertise of Sacyr gained over more than 20 years has generated innovation in Australia’s current waste management plan, which uses aeration spigots and leachates.

This project by Sacyr Concesiones will double the capacity of the old roads, Ruta 2 and Ruta 7, and will provide a solution to one of the most important road corridors in Paraguay. 

Ruta PY 02 covers 170 km of roads, which will be widened and improved. The concessions company will also operate and maintain the infrastructure. The contract includes the construction of five alternative routes between the cities of Asunción and Caaguazú. 

Approximately 65% of the country's population, more than 4 million people, live in the area crossed by the PY 02.

A milestone in the history of Paraguay

This project is the result of the biggest civil engineering contract in the history of Paraguay, secured through the Public-Private Partnership (p3) Law, and the first of its kind to be executed here. Furthermore, the works carried out to widen and extend the road, which began in 2019, employ over 1,000 people. There are over 400 machines working on the road.

At Sacyr, not only do we build infrastructures; we also contribute to the development of the countries in which we are present.

Innovation in the service of health

With the roll-out of this infrastructure, state-of-the-art equipment has been incorporated to carry out tests and diagnostics without patients having to travel to other regions in the country.

This significantly reduces the waiting list in specialized units.  For example, the arrival of the new Lithotripter, a machine that dissolves and pulverizes kidney stones, has reduced the Urology unit’s waiting list by 35%-40%.
