FCC Industrial to refurbish the electricity distribution networks in the Dominican Republic
FCC Industrial has won a contract to refurbish the distribution networks and improve the electricity metering systems for the state company CDEEE (Dominican Corporation of State Electrical Companies) in the Dominican Republic.
CDEEE launched an international tender process last December for the supply and installation of the equipment necessary to rehabilitate the electricity networks of different areas on the island. FCC Industrial submitted the best technical and financial bid in many of the lots. The total contract amounts to 16.1 million euros and has a 12 month completion deadline.
The scope of the contract includes the modernisation of the metering system of electricity usage, as well as helping to regulate clients and/or users. It also includes the refurbishment of the medium and low voltage networks, as well as the installation of electricity distribution transformers and the standardisation of supplies.
With this infrastructure, FCC Industrial will improve the electricity supply capacity for the local population, reducing the number of failures. Furthermore, this contract will improve the safety of citizens by installing public street lighting in the areas where it is not currently provided. The integration of the communities into the project will be facilitated through the participation and representation of community organisations and general users from the local area.
FCC Industrial constructs, operates and maintains electricity networks for companies such as Endesa, Iberdrola and Gas Natural Fenosa. It also designs, measures and constructs overhead and underground electricity networks of high and medium voltage for different types of public and private clients.
With these projects, we provide energy to citizens and industries, helping local economic growth and strengthening market synergies, which are all carried out under a sustainable and socially responsible growth framework.
