FCC wins street cleaning tender for Pamplona

The Pamplona City Council has awarded FCC a seven-year contract to provide street cleaning services in the city, with the possibility of a three year-extension. The contract is valued at 53 million euros.

FCC was the highest-scoring company in the public tender put out to bid by the City Council, in which two other construction and service groups also participated.

The company will assign a staff of 150 people to render these services to the more than 180,000 residents of Pamplona and will invest nearly 2,700,000 euros in new machinery. FCC will introduce new technological advances to improve the services it offers. Among others, these will include equipping vehicles with GPS positioning systems to monitor their position, direction and speed in real time and to reproduce their routes.

FCC signed its first contract with the Pamplona City Council for this type of work in December 1989 for a term of seven years. In 1997, it was once again the winner of a tender to keep the streets of Navarra's capital clean.

In Pamplona, the services provided by FCC during the San Fermín festival are noteworthy. Each year, the services are adapted to the city's emerging needs as a result of the festivities. In this regard, the company has incorporated new working methods to improve quality and has extended the special cleaning services to more areas of Pamplona.

In 2004, FCC had revenues from urban sanitation activities of 1,251 million euros. The population served in Spain was 24.5 million inhabitants residing in 3,299 cities and towns. Each year the company collects 7.5 million tons of waste and treats 6.5 million tons.
