Abengoa Wins Water Contract to Supply Chilean Mining in Atacama
Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) — Abengoa SA said the solar-thermal, water desalination and biofuels developer won a contract to supply water to the mining sector in Chile’s Atacama region.
The Seville, Spain-based company said the $65 million contract was awarded by Cleanairtech Sudamerica SA, part of the Compania Minera del Pacifico group, to develop a desalinated water pipeline for the mining industry in Copiapo Valley.
The project about 800 kilometers (500 miles) north of Santiago is due to be operational by December
Abengoa is carrying out the Zapotillo aqueduct water pipeline project in Mexico, which will supply drinking water to about 1.5 million inhabitants. Its projects also include Solana, the largest plant using parabolic-trough solar-thermal technology in Arizona, and one of the first commercial second- generation bioethanol plants, in Hugoton, Kansas, which will come into operation at the end of this year.
