Spain’s Abengoa to Develop Its 1st Desalination Project in Chile

MADRID – Spanish multinational Abengoa said Thursday it has been selected by Chile’s AES Gener to develop its first desalination plant in Chile.

Abengoa did not reveal the price tag of the project – located in Mejillones, in the northern region of Antofagasta – but said it will be responsible for the engineering, construction and subsequent operation of the plant.

It said the desalination facility, which will provide water to AES Gener’s power plant in Angamos, will have an initial capacity of 4,800 cubic meters (169,000 cubic feet) of water per day although that could be extended to a 19,200 cubic meters of water per day in a second phase.

Abengoa generates electricity from renewable resources through engineering, infrastructure concessions and industrial production activities in both the energy and environment sectors.

The company has been present since 1987 in Chile, where its projects include the 110 MW Cerro Dominador thermosolar plant.

Abengoa has built plants in the water sector in several Latin American countries, the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Ghana, China, India, Morocco and Spain.
