- The plants will have a combined average treatment capacity of 52,900 m3 per day
- The contracts strengthen Ferrovial’s focus on sustainable infrastructure
Ferrovial, through its Construction and Cadagua subsidiaries, has been awarded contracts to build two wastewater treatment plants in Spain worth a total of €65 million. Madrid City Government picked Ferrovial to build a wastewater treatment plant in Valdebebas (Madrid) for about €50 million. The contract also includes demolishing the existing treatment plant.The plant, to be built in phases, will treat an average of 50,400 m3/day of wastewater from Ciudad Lineal, Hortaleza and Barajas. Construction is expected to be completed in 2026.
The Andalusia Regional Government also chose the Ferrovial subsidiaries to build a wastewater treatment system in the municipality of Rute in Córdoba. The €15 million contract covers installing over 6 kilometers of pipe and four pumping stations to carry the municipality’s wastewater to a new treatment plant using a carrousel-type biological approach that will be able to treat average of 2,500 m3 per day. The town does not currently have a wastewater treatment system. The plant will avoid this water being discharged into the Fuente Clara, Salina and La Zarza rivers. The work is scheduled for completion in 2025.
These two projects strengthen Ferrovial’s focus on sustainable infrastructure with a positive impact on the environment and communities, as is the case with water treatment plants. The company was recently awarded three contracts for waterworks in Texas that together are worth USD 279 million (equivalent to approximately €256 million).
