Vectalia wins contract for surveillance in the coves
It is also proposed that Vectalia be awarded the contract for the security surveillance and access control service for the beaches of Xàbia, worth some 95,872.66 euros.
Through this contract, the capacity of the Arenal and La Grava beaches will be controlled along with the coves of La Granadella, Portitxol-Barraca, Ambolo (which is officially closed) and, for the first time, Cala Blanca.
In both cases, the winning companies must provide all the required documentation before contracts are signed, although it is the intention that these services will be up and running “as soon as possible”.
