FCC Servicios Medios Ambiente reinforces its leadership position in Florida with a 380 million contract in Hillsborough County
Hillsborough County (Florida) has awarded FCC Environmental Services (FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente’s US subsidiary) the largest of the three lots in the new contract of residential and commercial solid waste collection. The contract foresees a term of eight years and eight months, with a potential extension of four years, and represents a total order book value of $280 million (around €230 million). This agreement also grants FCC the exclusive franchise to provide the commercial collection service in its area which will add further 100 million to the backlog.
To service the city’s 105.000 residences in the awarded area and cover the apartment blocks and commercial collection service, a fleet of 95 compressed natural gas (CNG) lorries will be put into service. The mencioned fleet will be based at newly built facilities and will also include the necessary gas refueling station.
FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente’s US subsidiary reinforces thus its leadership in the state of Florida, where it already holds a strong presence with contracts in Palm Beach, Orange, Volusia, Polk and the recently added Wellington, among others. Iñigo Sanz, FCC Environmental Services CEO, expressed that the Hillsborough contract represents a major milestone in the history of FCC in the state of Florida since, after this award, the company will serve over one and a half million inhabitants in this state.
