Spanish water management company FCC Aqualia has extended its international business portfolio to include Serbia and Kosovo in Southeastern Europe and also signed a new wastewater agreement in its home market.
The water management subsidiary of FCC said it had been awarded new contracts valued at more than EUR15 million for the construction of water treatment plants in the cities of Vrsac in Serbia and Prizren in Kosovo.
In Serbia, the company will build a treatment plant with the capacity to produce 26,000 cubic meters of drinking water per day for the city of Vrsac, located in the province of Voivodina. This contract is worth EUR5.6 million.
The EUR10.5 million contract in Kosovo covers a wastewater treatment plant with a capacity equivalent to 50,000 inhabitants in the first phase.
Although these are new territories for FCC Aqualia, the company already has a presence in the region: it is currently leading the construction of treatment plants in Niksic and Pljevica in Montenegro, and another in Konjic in Bosnia.
Separately, FCC Aqualia has won a contract to operate and maintain 28 wastewater treatment plants managed by Canal de Isabel II in Madrid, Spain. This is a two-year deal worth nearly EUR5.5 million, with an option to extend the contract for a further two years.
FCC’s water management subsidiary has operations in 22 countries and generated revenues of EUR950 million in 2013.
