FCC Chairman travels with King of Spain to the UAE

His Majesty the King of Spain visited the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait from 13 to 16 April, accompanied by cabinet ministers José Manuel García-Margallo (Foreign Affairs), Pedro Morenés (Defence), Ana Pastor (Development), and José Manuel Soria (Industry, Energy and Tourism) as well as deputy ministers Rafael Catalá (Infrastructure, Transportation and Housing) and Jaime García-Legaz (Trade). The mission also included representatives from leading Spanish companies. Esther Alcocer Koplowitz, FCC Group Chairman, participated on behalf of FCC.

 

FCC, the Citizen Services Group, currently operates in the United Arab Emirates through a contract to operate and maintain the sewers and water treatment system in eastern Abu Dhabi and it is also bidding for infrastructure construction contracts.

The FCC Aqualia project, which is the first contract ever awarded to a Spanish company in the seven countries comprising the UAE, includes the city of Al Ain and remote areas, serving more than 650,000 people.

FCC Construction's activities in the UAE are managed from its office in Doha (Qatar), supported by a business development manager for Abu Dhabi. The company has bid for several projects which are pending adjudication, such as the Zayed Museum (consortium with local company ACC) and the Etihad Rail project.
