Ferrovial Services, through FBSerwis, a Polish joint venture with Budimex, has completed the acquisition of 80% of Amest Kamiensk, the company that owns the waste treatment plant, located in Ruszczyn, in central Poland.
This plant came into service in the first half of 2015 and is the most modern installation of its type in the province of Łódź. It can process 100,000 tons of waste per year and has a line for producing solid refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and a landfill.
This acquisition follows that of Pro Eko Natura early last year. The latter owns another waste treatment plant and a landfill site in the province of Lower Silesia, which has enhanced FBSerwis' position in this market. The plant can process 90,000 tons per year. It is ranked as a Regional Treatment Centre.
These two acquisitions strengthen Ferrovial Services' position in Central and South-west Poland, specifically around Łódź, a strategic city for the company. In addition to waste collection and treatment, FBSerwis maintains over 800 kilometres of highways and motorways, and maintains 1 million square metres of commercial and industrial buildings.
