Strukton International win first Latin America project
Strukton International has been awarded a contract by Metro de Santiago S.A. to construct five underground stations (package Grupo 1 & 2) at Line 3, one of the new metro lines under construction in the city centre of Santiago, Chile. It is the first project in the Latin American region for the company of Dutch origin. Strukton International is part of a joint venture with Arrigoni Engineering & Construction. The total contract value amounts to EUR 46 million. The underground stations will be delivered within 22 months.
The project comprises the construction of five ventilation shafts and five underground stations: Los Libertadores, Cardenal Caro, Vivaceta, Conchali, and Plaza Chachabuco. The scope includes civil, structural, architectural and mechanical, electrical & plumbing (MEP) works. Since some of the stations are in the city centre and the space on the work sites is limited, logistics will be a big challenge. The client, Metro de Santiago S.A., has a strong reputation in the area.
“This project is therefore expected to be a firm base for further expanding the activities of Strukton International in Latin America and the rail/metro related business in general” Bert Hoekstra, Managing Director Strukton International.
Strukton is increasingly presenting itself as a technology company, particularly distinguishing itself by using data in both maintenance and management. Asset management is the key core competence here. Strukton’s mission is to help boost the quality and safety of rail transport, road infrastructure and technical systems and buildings.
