Acciona expands footprint in Italy with two water contracts worth 31.5M€

Acciona Agua has obtained two new contracts in Italy: one for sanitation and water treatment plant maintenance in Tuscany, and another to manage sewer networks in Apulia. The two contracts are worth a total of €31.57 million.

Publiacqua, the company in charge of water management in the area of Florence (Tuscany) has awarded Acciona Agua a contract to maintain drinking water and waste water treatment plants in the Florence – Chianti area, and repair of breakages in a number of municipalities in the region, grouped in three packets (Parto/Pistoia, Firenze/Chianti and Mugello/Valdarno).

The contract covers ordinary and extraordinary maintenance work and upgrading water treatment plants, including ancillary work such as civil engineering, waste transport and maintenance of thermal dryers.

This is Acciona Agua’s second contract in the region; in 2017 it obtained a contract for waste water treatment and sewer maintenance in 18 municipalities, with a population of approximately 171,000, in the areas of Mugello and Valdarno, in the province of Florence, worth a total of €35 million.

Acquedotto Pugliese, the public water company in the Apulia region, the most industrialized region in Southern Italy, has awarded a consortium headed by Acciona Agua a contract for sewer inspection and maintenance in the province of Taranto, in which Acciona Service also participates with its environmental activity. The contract is worth €15.57 million.

This work is of strategic importance (including installation of new pipes under roads and extension of the existing networks) and requires exhaustive scheduling and planning; it includes finding leaks and applying non-digital technology (pipe repair without digging) while minimizing the environmental impact.
