Strukton wins its first Latin American project

24 Nov 16 Metro de Santiago has appointed Strukton International to build five underground stations for 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, 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.
