SPOTLIGHT

The authority responsible for the Alto Piura irrigation project (Peihap) has decided to terminate the agreement with the Obrainsa-Astaldi consortium due to delays in the construction of the project's transfer tunnel

The authority responsible for the "Alto Piura" irrigation project (Peihap) notified the consortium Obrainsa - Astaldi of the termination of the agreement signed for the construction of the Tronera Sur dam and the Trans-Andean water transfer tunnel, due to the delays in the project, which has been paralyzed since August 4th.

In the notification sent to the consortium, the Peihap indicated that the physical verification of the works will be carried out next November 5, as well as the inventory under notarial corroboration.

Faced with this situation, the general manager of the project, Marco Vargas, informed that it will prepare a new tender for the unfinished works. For this new process, the companies that participated in the last tender for the transfer tunnel will be invited. If such companies are interested, they will have to submit a technical file to define the new contractor.

If there are no interested parties, the Peihap will be obliged to carry out an international bidding process, a process that will last between 3 and 6 months. However, this new process will be carried out under a new management since January 1st, 2019.
