This is an innovative project on a world scale, consisting of the centralized production and supply of energy to companies that set up operations in the modern business park. The Common Infrastructures Unit (CIC), is the 'energy heart' of the CAT. Pioneering
From the CIC a 2-kilometre-long OVERHEAD METALLIC RACK is deployed throughout the complex for the distribution of energy services.. Pioneering
The objective of the CIC is to avoid companies having to make their own investments in this area. Thanks to this innovative system savings of up to 15% on energy costs can be achieved. Synergies are sought in all the processes and services, meaning that energy efficiency is above 80%. Pioneering
TRIGENERATION ( Steam, refrigeration, electricity) Production of: Steam at 12 bar and 200ºC. Hot water at 80ºC. Cold water at 5.5ºC, through a process of absorption of BrLi. Electricity. Pioneering
CONVENTIONAL PRODUCTION OF HEAT 2 dual boilers (gas oil/natural gas) produce 12,000 kg/hour of steam at 12 bar. Hot water at 80ºC. Pioneering
CONVENTIONAL PRODUCTION OF INDUSTRIAL REFRIGERATION. An ammonia-CO2 cascade refrigeration cycle means that refrigeration fluid can be produced at different temperatures. - 10ºC for refrigerated chambers - 33ºC for freezer chambers - 45ºC for freezing tunnels Cold water at 5.5ºC for air conditioning Pioneering

MODERNA is the new Model of Economic Development for Navarra: A Regional Strategic Plan for the medium and long term. The idea behind MODERNA can be expressed in five business clusters, based on the current situation and a strategy for the future, in three areas (the Health Economy, the Green Economy and the Talent Economy). The agrifood industries are in the strategic clusters, with the CAT being one of the pillars of the agrifood cluster. Solid
Tudela is located on the Ebro valley corridor, a meeting place between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, on the axis that links Madrid to France via Soria and Pamplona. The High-Speed Train (AVE) project and the Tudela- Medinaceli expressway will favour an intermodal system that will reduce logistics costs.
Future of the project: The Agrifood City of Tudela, is part of the 'La Serna' macro industrial and logistics park. It covers 5,000,000 m 2. Sector-1 Agrifood City Sector-2 and Sector-3 Industrial area and Intermodal logistics. Area reserved for the possible route of the AVE Strategic

Closing of the natural cycle of organic material, returning the raw material consumed to nature in the form of animal feed and (plant-based) fertilizer. Exploitation of the energy synergies of the agrifood industries, obtaining a high overall energy efficiency (around 87%). Reduction of natural gas capacity required at 23,000 kW, and of greenhouse gases by 13.5 metric tonnes of CO2/year. SUSTAINABILITY: Its construction has taken into account the European guidelines on sustainable design, so it will have 6.5 hectares of olive trees, green spaces, livestock trails and other uses. Caring for the environment.
