Abengoa, Kipreos gets US$93m Chile transmission project

SANTIAGO — Chile-based high-tension line operator Transelec has awarded a US$93 million transmission project to a consortium, comprising Abengoa and Kipreos Ingenieros.

The project entails a 140km, 500kV transmission line connecting the Los Changos and Kimal substations in Antofagasta region (II), as well as works at each of the two substations, Abengoa said in a statement earlier this week.

Construction is expected to be finished by end-2019.
