Iberdrola Ingenieria has won a contract from state-owned Aguas de las Cuencas Mediterraneas to build a substation and related 220kV high-voltage line to facilitate the electricity connection at a new desalination plant in the province of Alicante, Spain.

The work, which is expected to cost approximately €7.3m, includes both drafting and execution of the project, and the desalination plant is currently in the construction phase.

Construction of substations and electricity-distribution lines is one of the company's four main business areas, in addition to the development of generation infrastructure, nuclear power plants and renewable-energy facilities.
