Abengoa and AES Gener sign a Memorandum of Understanding to develop desalination plant in Chile

November 8, 2013

  • The plant will have a total budget of 26 MUS$ and will provide 19,200 m3/d of water.

November 8, 2013.– Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B/P SM /NASDAQ: ABGB), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has been selected by AES Gener, one of the leading energy companies in Chile, to develop a new reverse osmosis desalination plant for an Angamos power plant.

Abengoa will manage the engineering, construction and subsequent operation of the project which will have a total budget of 26 MUS$ and will provide 19,200 mm3/d of water for reliable energy generation in Angamos and third party clients.

It will be Abengoa’s first desalination project in Chile and South America, although the company has had a presence in the country for over 27 years.

Abengoa employs over 1,400 people in Chile where it has developed projects in water and energy infrastructure. The Angamos desalination project is part of Abengoa’s strategic plan to provide relief to the drought-ridden areas of South America, such as Northern Chile.

Through this project Abengoa will expand its desalination capacity to nearly 1.3 million m3 per day, which is enough to provide water to 8 M people.

Furthermore, this plant reaffirms Abengoa’s committment to providing technological solutions for global issues such as water scarcity and promoting overall development worldwide. The company currently operates desalination plants in Algeria, Ghana, China, India and Spain.
