Instalaciones Inabensa, a subsidiary of Abeinsa, the parent company of Abengoa’s Industrial Engineering and Construction Business Unit, has been awarded a contract by the Moroccan national electricity company, Office National de l’Électrité (ONE), to reinforce the national network’s 400 kV lines and to execute the connection of the 400 and 225 kV lines to the Mediouna, in the north of the country, and Qualili, to the northeast, electricity substations. The contract value is 19 million euro.

The execution period of this turnkey project, funded by the French Development Agency (AFD), is eighteen months.
