Hospital de Maipú abriría a comienzos de 2014

99% de avance:

Un 99% y 98% de avance tienen las obras gruesas de los nuevos hospitales de Maipú y La Florida, respectivamente, según el MOP. En el primer caso, el 65% fue recepcionado y está siendo equipado. Eso implica que, tras la recepción final, podría iniciar la marcha blanca en octubre y abrir totalmente el primer trimestre de 2014.

Ambos recintos fueron pensados para funcionar bajo un nuevo modelo de gestión, como hospitales clínicos. Pero como la ley que los crea está entrampada en el Congreso, Salud no descarta que Maipú funcione como hospital autogestionado hasta que se apruebe la ley o un veto presidencial.

  • Brazil's state-run energy major Petrobras has been given approval to begin diesel production at the US$18.5bn Abreu e Lima refinery, according to federal gazette Diário Oficial da União. Local hydrocarbons regulator ANP said the oil giant was free to operate the facility's diesel hydrotreatment and hydrogen generation units. The watchdog added that the refinery's output will be limited to 39% capacity until further environmental requirements are met. Thursday's announcement came in the same week Petrobras received approval to begin operating three units and six storage tanks at the complex. Located in the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Abreu e Lima was originally expected to begin operating in 2010. The 230,000b/d facility, whose output will be 70% diesel, will account for 11% of Brazil's refining capacity. It is one of four Brazilian refineries expected to begin operating by 2018, as Petrobras seeks to reduce its dependence on liquid imports.

  • It will become increasingly common to see companies with interests in the provision of roads in Mexico selling part of their holdings in the sector and making strategic alliances – which is exactly what OHL Mexico has announced it plans to do. The company said recently it would sell up to a 10% stake in Conmex, its most important concession operator. Marco Medina, a construction sector analyst with financial group Bx+, said companies like OHL Mexico and competitor ICA are selling part of their stakes in road concessions so they can participate in new road projects being launched . "The trend is to see new strategic alliances between companies and sales of their participation in concessions, in order to have sufficient resources to enable them to continue participating in the projects included in the national infrastructure plan 2014-2018," Medina said. The new alliances will be formed so that, above all, companies can monetize their assets. OHL Mexico shares fell earlier this week after its parent company, the Spanish engineering group OHL, announced the sale of 7.5% of its subsidiary. Meanwhile, OHL Mexico's announcement that it would sell part of its stake in Conmex also likely contributed to the drop. Medina believes that the company's share price will stabilize. He said that in 2015 the firm is expected to continue as one of the major players in the road concession sector. Among the projects included in the national infrastructure plan 2014-2018 is the Atizapán - Atlacomulco road. The concession contract for the 9.35bn-peso (US$686mn) project was awarded to OHL Mexico. Another project, the Tuxpan -Tampico highway and the Cardel-Poza Rica road were awarded to Mota-Engil. OHL posted a net profit of 87.5mn euros (US$109mn) for the first nine months, a 41% year-on-year drop. Sales fell 1.80% to 2.55bn euros, with Central America and South America accounting for 26.7% of income.

  • Peru believes railway projects that seek to link Brazil to the north and Bolivia to the south are feasible, Peruvian President Ollanta Humala said. Peru, Brazil and China earlier this month signed a memorandum at the Apec forum in China to run studies for an inter-oceanic railway which would link Brazil's Atlantic coast with an unspecified northern Pacific port in Peru and, in turn, Chinese markets, Humala said. At the same time, Peru's deputy transport minister traveled to Bolivia for meetings with government officials to discuss an "ambitious" railway project that faces "engineering challenges" over the route from the Bolivian capital down to Peru's southern port of Ilo, Humala said. "We have a strategic relationship with Brazil and a level of an integral strategic relationship with China," Humala told foreign correspondents at the presidential palace in Lima. "The inter-oceanic railway has nothing to do with the railroad that will link La Paz with Ilo, which is another project." In social infrastructure projects, Peru is building a school per day as part of its public-private partnerships (PPP) program and seeks to build more than 170 hospitals or health centers in provinces including Junín, Jaén and Moquegua, Humala said. Peru's economic growth has slowed as trading partners such as China reduce their purchase of metals, while added-value manufactured products are performing better than commodities, Humala said. Peruvian GDP is estimated to grow over 5% in 2015 compared with 3% this year and with 1-1.2% in Latin America, as work gets underway on projects such as the Lima metro system, the southern Andean natural gas pipeline, the Andean highway and the expansion of Petroperu's Talara oil refinery, he said. Other projects include the Choquequirao cable car system in Cusco, held up by a lawsuit, a 600mn-sol (US$205mn) fund for infrastructure investment in the upper Huallaga valley and 1.6bn soles in the Apurímac, Eene and Mantaro (Vraem) valleys, with projects including the Quinua-San Francisco highway, Humala said. The Huallaga and Vraem areas are centers of cocaine production in Peru. "What we're seeing today is a reflection on a substantial drop in minerals prices," Humala said. "Next year will be better as major projects are coming on stream." Humala said he plans to attend the Ibero- American summit in Mexico from December 8-9 and travel back to Lima with several leaders for the UN summit on climate change (COP 20) to be held from December 1-12 in Lima.
