December 7 (SeeNews) - Romania has awarded two deals worth a total 65 million euro ($95 million) to Alpine, the Austrian unit of Spain’s Fomento De Construcciones Y Contratas (FCC), FCC said on Friday.
Alpine has been awarded two infrastructure projects in the EU newcomer: resurfacing and widening of 13 kilometres of streets in the capital Bucharest, and construction of two new bridges in the city, FCC said in a statement.
Alpine will resurface seven kilometres of the northern outer section of Bucharest's ring road and expand it from two to four lanes. It will also build a 240-metre cable-stayed bridge. The works will last 18 months, and construction of the bridge will take 24 months. This contract is worth 30.8 million euro.
The company will also refurbish the main entrance into Bucharest from the west. It will expand 5.3 kilometres of road to four lanes and build a 290-metre bridge to carry the boulevard over the western ring road. In this area, Alpine will also widen 1.2 kilometres of the ring road to four lanes. The works will take 19 months. The budget totals 33.5 million euro.
In Romania, FCC, through Alpine, is implementing environmental projects worth a total 37 million euro to build two landfills and two sewage treatment plants. In Bucharest, the company is building the new headquarters of oil and gas group Petrom, as well as a cable-stayed bridge. FCC acquired 80% of Alpine in 2006.
FCC, through FCC Construccion, is building the Basarab viaduct in Bucharest, worth 135 million euro, and a bridge over the Danube, linking Bulgaria with Romania, plus access roads, worth a total 100 million euro.
