Hyundai E&C bags wastewater plant contract in Colombia

Hyundai Engineering & Construction said yesterday that it has won a $350 million wastewater treatment plant project in Colombia.

The deal, awarded by Empresas Publicas de Medellin, a Colombian public utilities company, calls for Hyundai E&C to build and operate the Bello water treatment plant in the suburbs of Medellin, the Latin American country’s second-largest city.

The plant, located 240 kilometers (149 miles) northwest of the capital Bogota, will be designed to treat 430,000 tons of wastewater per day.

Hyundai said it secured the deal as part of a consortium with Spain’s Acciona Agua S.A.

The builder said work should start this year and be completed by 2015, or in about 48 months.
