Aqualia obtains end-to-end water management contract in  Bollullos Par del Condado (Huelva)

  • The contract is for 25 years and represents 29 million euro in revenues

 

FCC's water management subsidiary, Aqualia, has been awarded an end-to-end water management contract by the city government of Bollullos Par del Condado (Huelva).

The 25-year contract is worth 29 million euro, with annual revenues of more than 1 million euro.

The contract includes various infrastructure upgrades such as building a new well to ensure an autonomous water supply, installing water pumps and remote control systems, refurbishing the network and updating the existing reservoir.

Aqualia will manage the city's waterworks: 63 km of water mains, 50 km of sewers, a 6,000 m3  reservoir and a wastewater treatment plant under construction which is expected to be completed three years into the contract.

Bollullos Par del Condado, which has 14,000 inhabitants, is located in the renowned winemaking region of Condado-Campiña. The town, which is very close to Doñana National Park, is 55 km from the regional capital of Seville.

Aqualia is maintaining and reinforcing its commitment to Andalusia, where it serves more than two million clients. The company operates in 70 towns throughout Andalusia, where it manages local water services and is responsible for operating and maintaining 13 drinking water treatment plants and 59 wastewater treatment plants. Aqualia also provides services in other parts of Huelva, specifically Almonte, Matalascañas, El Rocío, Valverde del Camino, Nerva and the Ciparsa development in Mazagón, where it serves over a total of over 51,000 people.

Aqualia, which ended 2008 with revenues of 845 million euro and a backlog of almost 12 billion euro, remains committed to expanding abroad; it currently operates in the Czech Republic, Portugal, Italy, Algeria, China and Mexico, and serves more than 26 million people worldwide.

FCC entered the water management business in 1990, and in less than two decades it has become one of the world's leading companies in the sector.

In Spain, Aqualia has a 34% share of the outsourced water management market. The company provides water services in 1,100 municipalities to more than 13 million people. In 2007, Aqualia was named "Water Company of the Year" by prestigious international magazine Global Water Intelligence, a fitting tribute to its track record and international scope. It was also awarded the Customer Service Leadership of the Year award by prestigious UK consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.
