Acciona Tests Mexico Utility Concession Model

04 January 2018
Research Note

On 19 December 2017, Spanish private water player Acciona Agua and the municipality of Boca del Río, in the state of Veracruz, Mexico signed a 30-year water utility concession agreement for the company to manage the full water cycle for over 140,000 people.

The contract’s operation performance targets include a reduction of non-revenue water, which currently stands at over 50%. The clock is ticking on  Mexico’s 2014 national infrastructure plan. With federal elections coming on 1 July 2018, this concession’s performance will provide a useful reference.
