WCN Editorial Team 1 Jun 2020 SOUTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

A consortium of Acciona, Ferrovial and Peru-based JJC has won a contract from Lima Airport Partners (LAP), an operator of Peru's main airport, to build the Control Tower at Jorge Chávez Airport in Lima, Peru.

Scheduled to be operational in 2022, the 65m-high tower will be made of reinforced concrete and steel pillars. 

The project forms part of the airport expansion scheme of the Peruvian capital city.

Upon completion, Jorge Chávez Airport is touted to become one of the largest and most modern airports in South America.

Covering a total area of 3,100m², the project will include the new tower (1,600m²) and another 1,500m² of auxiliary buildings that will feature operational facilities.

The facilities include a Regulation and Transformation Centre, a fire extinguishing building, an electrical substation, a wildlife control building, and external water supply and sanitation networks.

The scope of the contract includes overall civil and electromechanical works related to the tower’s development and its auxiliary installations, as well as all the building's systems, services and facilities.

Acciona ventured into the South American nation’s infrastructure market in 1998.

The firm developed major projects in the Peruvian water sector, including the Talara desalination plant, the wastewater treatment plant in La Chira and the wastewater treatment plant in Arequipa. It also provides water management services in Lima for Sedapal, a state-owned firm.

Acciona introduced its Luz en Casa programme in Peru in 2009. Currently, the initiative offers basic electricity services to more than 18,000 inhabitants of rural and isolated communities in the country.
