Abengoa to build power-plant RO project in Chile
11 Nov 13 by desalination
Spanish contractor Abengoa has been selected by Chilean energy company AES Gener to develop a reverse-osmosis desalination plant for the Angamos power plant.
Abengoa has signed a memorandum of understanding with AES Gener for the US$ 26 million plant, which will provide 19,200 m³/d of water.
Abengoa will manage the engineering, construction and subsequent operation of the project, which is its first desalination project in Chile and South America, although the company has had a presence for over 27 years in Chile, where it has developed projects in water and energy infrastructure.
