July 2 (Bloomberg) -- Abengoa SA, a renewable energy developer involved in solar, wind and desalination projects from Mexico to Dubai, won a contract to deliver water to the Texas city of San Antonio to help ease its supply constraints.

Abengoa will develop the project calling for the delivery of 50,000 acre-feet per year of water to San Antonio through a 142-mile (225-kilometer) pipeline, the Seville, Spain-based company said in a statement. Terms of the 30-year contract for the project to bring water from Burleson County that includes a water-treatment plant and 18 wells weren’t given.

The project will help San Antonio diversify its long-term water sources and secure supplies strained by the Edwards aquifer, Abengoa said. Construction will take start next year and be completed by 2019, creating 300 jobs during the building phase. The company is already constructing the El Zapotillo aqueduct in Mexico, one of the largest water projects in the world that’s to supply drinking water to 1.5 million people.
