(Ecofin Agency) - The Indian infrastructure company, Salasar Techno Engineering, announced on July 14 it has received a $2.43 million order from American Tower Corporation (ATC) for the supply of 189 telecom towers in Nigeria. As part of the deal signed with ATC Africa, the equipment is expected to be delivered within the next two months.
The telecom towers will enable ATC to strengthen its footprint on the Nigerian telecom market, where demand for mobile connectivity is rapidly growing. ATC plans to further expand its sites in anticipation of this need and to broaden its portfolio to meet the needs of customers across the country.
As of March 31, 2020, despite the coronavirus context, Salasar Techno Engineering had an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) backlog of more than $51 million to be executed over the next six to eight quarters.
