MADRID Ė Spanish engineering and renewable energy company Abengoa said Monday it would build a new terminal at a port in Uruguay under a contract worth 81 million euros ($93 million).
The terminal will be constructed in Capurro, a district in Montevideo, Abengoa said.
The Spanish company, which has a 50 percent stake in the consortium that won the contract, will oversee the project, which will add 1,000 meters (3,278 feet) of piers to handle industrial fishing boats at the port.
The project also calls for filling 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres), paving, installing a wastewater system, connecting utilities and fuel pumps, and dredging.
The 30-month project is expected to break ground in the fourth quarter of this year, creating 140 jobs, Abengoa said.
Abengoa has operated in Uruguay since 1980, completing projects for public and private sector clients.
The Spanish companyís projects in the South American country include the expansion and updating of a water plant; construction of the Montevideo-San Carlos transmission line; and the Palmatir and Cadonal wind farms.
