ACCIONA, a Spanish multinational conglomerate that develops and manages infrastructure and renewable energy projects, has embraced the digital twin technology, building information modeling (BIM), and drones for its desalination, tunnelling, mining, and metro projects.

Talking to Construction Week about how digitisation has changed the game for the company, Jesús Sancho, ACCIONA Middle East’s managing director, said: “There are two or three things that have passed in the last few years. The adoption of technology has improved energy efficiency per cubic meter of water.
“It has also helped in reducing the consumption of energy, while we have been able to introduce renewable energy sources.”
