Spanish company Abengoa SA (ABG) announced Thursday in a statement issued in Seville that it had finished building an aqueduct running from Xangongo to Ondjiva, in the southern Angolan province of Cunene.
The project involved construction of a unit with capacity to treat 16.3 million litres of water per day that will benefit around 250,000 people.
The company was also responsible for laying pipes, over a distance of 100 kilometres, along which the water will be carried from the Cunene River.
The project is part of a wider plan to supply water to northern Namibia as well as to southern Angola. (macauhub)
