California-based utility Imperial Irrigation District (IID) has chosen Abengoa to work on the Path 42 power transmission project.

The project is an extension of IID's power network meant to help increase capacity and enable access to new sources of renewable energy in California.

The contract involves the reconductoring of a total of 32 km of a 230 kV transmission line, as well as the upgrade of existing substations. Abengoa will be responsible for the engineering, construction and commissioning, and the project is expected to be complete in April 2014.
