FCC to continue water management in Badajoz until 2044

  • Revenues are projected to total 800 million euro


The city government of Badajoz and Aqualia, the FCC Group's water subsidiary, have reached an agreement to extend the end-to-end water management contract until 2044. The concession represents a backlog of some 800 million euro for the FCC subsidiary until the end of the contract.

Aqualia will invest 12 million euro in implementing the Water Sanitation Master Plan in Badajoz, which includes development and restoration work on the sewer system up to 2009 and renovating the waste water treatment plant in Rincón de Caya.

Badajoz has a population of 155,000. Aqualia supplies 17 million cubic metres each year to a total of 54,000 customers in the city.

The company is maintaining and strengthening its commitment in the city and in the surrounding region of Extremadura, where it is present in 72 municipalities and 6 districts, providing water services to over 520,000 citizens.

Aqualia is continuing to grow and strengthen its presence in Extremadura and the rest of Spain, and is a leader in water management services, with 33% market penetration. It is present in over 800 municipalities and provides water services to a population of over 13,000,000. The company has also had a strong international footprint, as it has recently been awarded several contracts in the Czech Republic, Italy and Portugal.
