Budimex, the Polish subsidiary of Ferrovial Agroman, has been awarded a contract by KGHM Polska Miedz to build an industrial complex for copper production in Glogów, in southwest Poland. KGHM Polska Miedz is one of the world’s largest producers of copper and silver.
The project, which is worth around 30 million euro, strengthens Ferrovial’s activity in the Polish industrial construction segment. The project will be executed by Mostostal Kraków, a Budimex subsidiary specialised in steel structure assembly and equipment installation for the cement, energy, metallurgical and chemical industries.
The complex will comprise two fluidised furnaces and an electric furnace distributed in several buildings, together with a recovery boiler in a separate building. The project also includes a nine-story annex building for power generation.
Budimex has expanded in Poland’s industrial construction sector in the last year, obtaining contracts for cement and power plants as well as waste and water treatment facilities. In July 2012, a consortium comprising
Cespa (an environmental services subsidiary of Ferrovial) and Keppel Seghers, a Belgian environmental technology company, was awarded a contract to design and build a waste-to-energy plant in the city of Bialystok.
