University of Idaho Utility System P3

We will manage and improve the power and water utility system at the University of Idaho for a 50-year term.
The university is a cultural and economic driver for the State of Idaho.

The university is a cultural and economic driver for the State of Idaho. 

Sacyr Concesiones, in consortium with infrastructure manager Plenary, will undertake the operation, maintenance, and improvement of the power, water, and steam generation and distribution utility systems on the University of Idaho campus, which spans 640 hectares and is located in the city of Moscow.

With this contract, Sacyr achieves a new milestone in its 2015-2020 Strategic Plan: to secure its first P3 contract in the United States. 

Founded in 1889, the University of Idaho offers more than 150 degrees to its nearly 12,000 students. The 640-hectare Moscow campus includes 253 buildings and 32 hectares of green spaces. 


A small city

The service infrastructure of the university campus resembles that of a small city. It has, for example, a cold-water distribution system that extends 12.8 kilometers and an electrical distribution grid that runs 6 kilometers in length. The drinking water network totals 31.7 kilometers and is equipped with compressed air and steam distribution pipes.

One of the improvements we will introduce is the reduction of the university’s carbon footprint. To do so, we will advocate the use of renewable energy sources and boost system efficiency. We will also exercise sustainable use of the Grande Ronde and Wanapum aquifers and improve wastewater management. 

Take a virtual tour of the campus.
