The Governing Council of the Madrid Regional Government was informed today of the proposal for the award by Canal de Isabel II of contracts for the operation and maintenance of the peripheral sewerage networks managed by the company in the region.
The contract, divided into eleven independent lots, will have a duration of four years, which may be extended by one more year. The award amount of the first eight lots is €116,645,657.02 (excluding VAT).
In total, the eight lots of the proposed award of which the Governing Council has been informed will include operation, maintenance and management of 10,200 km of sewerage networks, the equivalent of the straight-line distance between Madrid and Thailand.
These networks are divided geographically into conservation areas: specifically, the Council was informed of the award of the lots corresponding to Valmayor-Majadahonda, Rincón Suroeste, Guadarrama, Culebro A and B, Tajo, Jarama and Colmenar. Following today’s proposal, the lots corresponding to the areas of Torrelaguna, Sierra Norte and Santillana are still pending award.
