Washington - Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B/P SM /NASDAQ: ABGB), the international  company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has been selected by AES Gener, one of the leading energy companies in Chile, to develop a new reverse osmosis desalination plant for AES Gener's Angamos power plant.

Abengoa will manage the engineering, construction and subsequent operation of the project which will have a total budget  of US$ 26 million and will provide 19,200 m3/day of water for reliable energy generation for Angamos and third party clients.
This will be Abengoa's first desalination project in Chile and South America, although the company has had a presence in the country for over 27 years.
Abengoa employs over 1,400 people in Chile where it has developed projects in water and energy infrastructure. The Angamos desalination project is part of Abengoa's strategic plan to provide relief to the drought-ridden areas of South America, such as Northern Chile.

Through this project Abengoa will expand its desalination capacity to nearly 1.3 billion m3 per day, which is enough to provide water to 8 million people.
Furthermore, this plant reaffirms Abengoa's commitment to providing technological solutions  for global issues such as water scarcity and promoting overall development worldwide. The company currently operates desalination plants in Algeria, Ghana, China, India and Spain.
