  • It also won the Water Reuse Project of the Year award.

Aqualia, the FCC Group's water subsidiary, has been named Water Company of the Year in recognition of its track record and international scope.

The award was given by Global Water Intelligence (GWI), one of the leading international magazines in the industry, for Aqualia's capacity to grow in the highly-competitive international market by exporting its very successful business model from Spain. GWI also noted the speed with which Aqualia has adapted to the international scene.

Finalists for the award were Société des Eaux et d'Assainissement d'Algiers (Suez group), Shanghai Pudong Veolia Water (Veolia's Chinese subsidiary) and US company Black & Veatch, out of an initial field of close to eighty nominees.

Moreover, the Baix Llobregat wastewater reuse plant, on which the Aqualia-FCC joint venture is the main contractor, was named Water Reuse Project of the Year. It beat stiff competition, including the Jianxing City Water Treatment Plant (China), the Reliance Jamnagar Refinery in Gujarat (India), and the Palm Jumeirah MBR, in Dubai.

The Global Water Awards were established to honour and reward innovation and commitment on the part of companies in the water business.
