SEVILLE, Spain, July 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abengoa closes the financing of the first PPP project in Uruguay

  • Abengoa will be responsible for constructing, maintaining and operating a 50,000 m2 prison complex in the city of Montevideo.

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 closed the financing for the first public private partnership (PPP) project in Uruguay. The project consists of constructing, maintaining and operating a 50,000 m2 infrastructure in the city of Montevideo.

The project has been financed by issuing approximately US$90 million of project bonds in the Uruguayan capital markets.

Abengoa has been present in Uruguay since 1980, where it already has extensive experience in carrying out projects in the private sector and for the government and public administrations.
