Nov. 7, 2002 -- Vivendi Environnement has taken full control of Redal, the company holding a concession for municipal water, wastewater and electricity services in the region of Rabat-Sale in Morocco (2 million people served).

Total revenue for the remaining 26 years of the contract is estimated at 4.5 billion euros.

On October 9, 2002, the contracting authority1 approved the 100% acquisition of Redal from a group of spanish and portuguese investors.

CGSP-Onyx operates waste management services for Fes-Agdal, Rabat-Hassan and Oujda. Vivendi Water Systems has also been made responsible by the National Water Office for doubling the Laayoune plant's drinking water production capacity through sea water desalination.

The contracting authority is a council comprising all the urban and rural communities and districts in Rabat and the surrounding region: urban community of Rabat Sale and Temara, urban district of Skhirat and Bouznika, and the rural district of Sidi Bouknadel, Shoul, Ain Attig, Sebbah, Mers el Kheir, Sidi Yahia Zai and Cherrat.
