May 6 (Bloomberg) -- Acciona SA, the Spanish construction company that has built more than 70 desalination plants globally, won a 50 million-euro ($66 million) contract to design and build Gabon’s biggest drinking water-treatment plant.

The water division of the company, which is based in the Madrid suburb of Alcobendas, will build a plant with a daily production capacity of 140,000 cubic meters, enough to supply Gabon’s capital of Libreville and its surrounding neighborhoods for at least 15 years, Acciona said today statement. Construction is expected to last 20 months, it said.

Acciona has previously built two mini-hydropower plants and two highways in Gabon, as the African country pursues a public investment and economic program to transform the heavily oil-dependent nation into a diversified emerging market economy by 2025, according to a report from the International Monetary Fund.
