FCC lands two new contracts in the UK, for waste management and street cleansing

FCC's internationalisation process is moving forward in the United Kingdom. On this occasion, two Group subsidiaries in the UK have landed contracts in the environmental area.

One is for municipal waste treatment and disposal in Norfolk, awarded to FCC Environment UK. This 4-year contract is in force since 1 April last and may be extended by one year on expiration.

The Norfolk contract represents a backlog of 54 million euro and entails serving over half the county's 870,000 inhabitants. Additionally, up to 100,000 tons of municipal waste will be handled each year at the Costessey mechanical treatment and recycling plant, in the centre of the county.

Through subsidiary FCC Environment Services UK, the Group has reached an agreement with Harborough District Council to roll over its contract for municipal solid waste collection and street cleaning until 2023; the contract has been in force since 2008.

This renewal reflects the Council's confidence in FCC's technical and operational capabilities. The contract represents over 40 million euro for the Group's backlog, and entails serving a total of 88,000 people.

FCC's environmentally sustainable solutions in these two contracts will contribute to the UK authorities achieving their recycling and landfill diversion targets.

The FCC Group has been delivering environmental services in the UK since 1989. It currently serves over 20 million people there, and reported 926.9 million euro in revenues in 2015.
