Abengoa wins a water project in Chile worth $65 million

The contract, worth more than $65 million, will supply the mining industry in the Copiapó valley in the north of the country.

The project, which should be operational in December 2013, will enable water to be transported from the desalination plant located north of the city of Caldera until it reaches two end distribution points, where it will supply companies in the sector located in the region, as well as helping to supply nearby towns and villages.

The pipeline is located in the province of Copiapó, part of the Atacama region, approximately 800 km north of Santiago de Chile. Its purpose is to ensure water availability for mining operations in the region.

Abengoa is currently carrying out another water pipeline project, the Zapotillo aqueduct in Mexico, which is one of the largest water projects in the international market and will supply drinking water to nearly one and a half million inhabitants, in an efficient, sustainable and secure way.

This latest project will expand Abengoa’s experience of developing water infrastructures using innovative technology solutions, contributing to solving the serious issue of water scarcity, while promoting the development of the areas and sectors that it supplies. Abengoa has developed numerous projects in Chile, where it has been present for 25 years.
