Valoriza Medioambiente to provide street cleaning and waste colecction services in Santa Cruz de Tenerife
• The contract, which takes effect in December, will be for eight years and a total of 142 million euros.
• The current fleet of vehicles and equipment will be replaced by more sustainable and less noisy eco-efficient ones.
Starting in December, Valoriza Medioambiente will be providing the city cleaning service and the collection and transport of waste in Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Canary Islands). The contract has a duration of eight years and has a total worth of 142 million euros.
Valoriza will be replacing its fleet of sanitation vehicles in Santa Cruz and will change the approximately 6,000 trash containers in the city.
The cleaning contract for Santa Cruz, which has a population of 205,000, will be one of the most important contracts in Valoriza Medioambiente’s portfolio.
The new service is committed to sustainability. Valoriza Medioambiente will replace its entire fleet of vehicles and equipment for a new, more eco-efficient fleet that will run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or electricity. The fleet will generate less contaminants and will be much more respectful of the environment.
Likewise, the technological innovations incorporated in the vehicles and equipment allow self-diagnosis of the equipment and the transfer of work and operation data in real time.
The new containers are noted for being easy to use and empty, and will include Smart Elements that provide real-time information. What’s more, they are designed to make cleaning and maintaining them in top operating condition easy, agile and efficient.
A customer base worth more than 2 billion euros
With this new contract, Valoriza Medioambiente increases its presence in the waste disposal and street cleaning business, which it currently operates in almost 400 municipalities in Spain (including Madrid, Albacete, Toledo, Guadalajara, and Cadiz) and Colombia. Overall, the company has a client base worth over 2 billion euros and provides services to a population greater than 4.5 million.
