Abengoa is awarded transmission works in the UAE

UAE, Abu Dhabi: The project, which will consist of the dismantling of several transmission lines, is valued at $4.2 M (€3. M).

Abengoa, the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the infrastructure, energy and water sectors, through its Transmission and Infrastructure vertical and specifically through its company Abengoa Inabensa, has been awarded a series of works for Transco, the company responsible for power transmission in the emirate of Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi Transmission & Despatch Company). The contract is valued at $4.2 M.

The company will be responsible for the dismantling of 25.6 km of 400 kV double circuit line and 40.6 km of 220 kV double circuit line for the establishment and modification of the existing Mahawe – Wathva line. These works are expected to last a total of 32 months.

This new award highlights once again the trust placed by Transco in Abengoa, since it is not the first contract awarded to the Spanish engineering company. In the past, the company has completed the transmission lines Al Fayah – Shamka, of 400/220 kV and 23 km, and Fuyairah-Dibba/Fuyairah-Tayween, of 132 kV and 75 km.

Furthermore, this new contract supports Abengoa’s track record in the Middle East, where the company has been present for more than 15 years, during which it has successfully completed other projects in the sector, such as the 132/33 kV Al Dreez substation in Oman, or the more recent 132/33 kV Samad and Sinaw substations, and 60 km of associated 132 kV overhead transmission lines, also in Oman.
