FCC secures the contract for the conservation and maintenance of parks and gardens in Malaga

FCC has been providing the conservation and maintenance service for the gardens of Malaga since 2010, taking care of the areas in the East and Centre of the city. The new contract has increased the area FCC is responsible for and doubled its annual production.

126 operators will be provided by FCC for the new service. They will be equipped with new technologies to improve efficiency in their everyday work and inspections.

FCC has a wide variety of vehicles and machinery for delivering this service, including electric tricycles which are fully equipped with electric machinery for cleaning maintenance. These are designed by the R&D team of the FCC Machinery department, working with specialists in the Malaga park and garden contract at the “La Pelusa” facilities.

The service will also have a special lorry to enable treatments for plant health to be administered from a height. This innovative prototype is not currently available on the market. It has been developed by FCC in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Valencia, the Valencian Institute for Agrarian Research and local companies. Other technology used includes electric and hybrid vehicles with zero and low CO2 and noise emissions, as well as electrical tools for maintenance work, chainsaws, bush clearing machines and hedge trimmers.

In addition, the new contract will include a telescopic hydraulic jib crane with four sections, including a control box and vision system to monitor plant health treatment at a distance.
