The relations of the Budapest Sewage Works Ltd. (FCSM) with the agglomeration of the capital are not new. The sewer network of the capital receives more than 2.5 million cubic meter wastewater every year from numerous townships, such as Kerepestarcsa, Gyál, Vecsés, Üllő, Nagykovácsi, Üröm, Budakalász, Dunakeszi, Csömör and Szigetszentmiklós.
Our company has extensive experience in the operation of agglomeration water public utilities as well. On the basis of the cooperation agreement concluded with the municipality of Nagykovácsi, the waterworks of the township have been operated by a jointly owned service provider since 1999, ensuring the drinking water supply and collecting wastewater. On the basis of the cooperation agreement concluded with the Municipality of Budaörs, the wastewater collection utilities and the treatment plant of Budaörs are operated by a jointly owned company. Our tasks are not constrained to the sole operation. As experts of the municipality, we participate in the preparation of the decisions related to water public utility developments and reconstructions, the management of investments, which results in the continuous increase of the level of local water public utility services. In 2006, FCSM and our professional investor, Veolia Víz Zrt. committed, through the acquisition of a 26% stake in Érd and Environs Regional Waterworks Ltd., to transform ÉTV Kft into a service provider able to match nowadays needs and challenges.
Lately, more and more municipalities contact the Sewage Works to set the operation of their water utilities on a safe basis through the extension of the relationship. Our company is at their disposition, we evaluate the local specificities, the tasks to be resolved and the opportunities lying in a harmonized cooperation. We develop the details of such cooperation together with the experts of the municipalities so that a jointly favourable and calculable contract can be concluded that offers long term safety.
