It is the first project in the Latin American region for the company, which is of Dutch origin. Strukton International managing director Bert Hoekstra said that the project is expected to be a firm base for further expanding the activities of Strukton International in Latin America and expanding the rail/metro related business in general.
Strukton International is part of a joint venture with Arrigoni Engineering & Construction. The total contract value amounts to €46m and the stations are to 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.
Logistics will be a key challenge as some of the stations are in the city centre and the space on the sites is limited.
