Spain’s Abengoa Wins Wastewater Contract in Uruguay

MADRID – Spanish engineering and renewable energy company Abengoa said Monday it won a $13 million contract for a wastewater project in Ciudad de la Costa, Uruguay.

The contract was awarded by state-owned water and wastewater utility OSE, which supplies drinking water and provides sewerage service in Uruguay’s interior.

Abengoa will manage all aspects of project execution, supplying the materials and equipment, and providing other services needed to build the wastewater treatment facility on 244 hectares (602 acres) in Ciudad de la Costa’s Zone B3.

The contract calls for the installation of 40.5 kilometers (about 25 miles) of pipes, including connections to buildings, and two pumping systems.

The contract has a 24-month term and work is expected to start later this year.

The project is part of OSE’s plan to improve wastewater service in Ciudad de la Costa, where 80 percent of the urban core currently lacks service.

Residents currently use lined wells, which are pumped out with trucks that transport the wastewater to a treatment plant.
