Leaders in Urban Sanitation

In 2008, FCC was awarded contracts totalling 2.887 billion euro for urban sanitation activities in Spain (waste collection, street cleaning, municipal waste management, facility management, garden maintenance, sewer cleaning, etc.), i.e. twice the 2007 figure.

FCC provides urban sanitation services (waste collection, street cleaning, municipal waste management, garden cleaning, etc.) in 3,597 of Spain's 8,100 municipalities, where it billed 1.440 billion euro in 2008, compared with 1.350 billion euro in 2007. The company serves 27 million people.

In 2008, revenues from the above-mentioned services in Spain totalled 2.498 billion euro.

FCC's backlog in this area has expanded steadily and now amounts to 8.926 billion euro, i.e. 21.7% more than at 2007 year-end and equivalent to 70 months' work.

Outside Spain, FCC operates in Central and Eastern Europe, the UK and Latin America.
