Abengoa Completes Water Plant in Angola to Aid 250,000 People

Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Abengoa SA completed construction of a water plant and 100 kilometers (62 miles) of pipeline to bring drinking supplies to 250,000 people in southern Angola.

The project to supply potable water from Xangongo to Ondjiva in Cunene province will transport River Cunene waters to the plant, Abengoa said today in a statement. No terms were disclosed.

The works form part of a border plan with Namibia launched by the Angolan Ministry of Energy and Water to supply water to northern parts of Namibia. Abengoa said it’s also working on two aqueducts in Mexico and Chile, three reverse-osmosis desalination plants in Algeria, Ghana and Oman, and a drinking water facility in Sri Lanka.

Last month, the Seville, Spain-based company won a contract to build a $1 billion solar-thermal project in Chile’s Atacama desert that will be the largest of its kind in South America.
