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.

  • Spain's Gamesa will supply wind turbines totaling 214MW to nine Brazilian wind farms under agreements struck with local developers Companhia de Energias Renováveis (CER) and Eletrosul. The contracts call for the supply and installation of 166MW for CER and 48MW for Eletrosul, Gamesa said in a statement. The CER deal will see the Basque firm supply 83 turbines for six farms at the Xique-Xique II complex in Brazil's northeastern state of Bahia. Auctioned last year, the complex is due online in 2018. For Eletrosul, a subsidiary of Brazil's state-run power conglomerate Eletrobras, Gamesa will provide 24 turbines for the Cerro Chato complex in Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil. The units are expected to be delivered by December. Gamesa said that the new contracts take the company's firm orders in Brazil to almost 2GW. Tuesday's announcement comes less than a week after Gamesa signed a deal to supply 100MW to an unnamed Mexican wind developer.

  • London-listed insurer and reinsurer Brit announced the appointments of Carlos Becerra and Jimena Salgado to its new Miami-based Latin American and Caribbean platform. Becerra joins as VP of underwriting from AIG, and Jimena Salgado will be joining as underwriter from Liberty International. Both are set to focus on Latin American and Caribbean property and will report to Juan Calvache, senior VP for Latin America, who joined Brit in April from Partner Re to expand the company's Brit Global Specialty USA line into Latin American and Caribbean markets. "We are delighted to welcome Carlos Becerra and Jimena Salgado to Brit Global Specialty USA, and expect they will further contribute to the momentum that Juan Calvache has generated in the past few months. In particular, Becerra's engineering background adds bench strength to our expertise-led underwriting approach," said Noreen Metcalfe, head of property for Brit Global Specialty USA.

  • A turnaround in US oil services firm Halliburton's Latin American operations is dependent on events in Brazil and Mexico, the firm's CEO David Lesar said during a 2Q14 conference call. Halliburton's total Latin America revenue fell to US$897mn in the second quarter from US$994mn in 2Q13. In the same period, total Latin America operating income dropped to US$61mn from US$101mn, according to Halliburton's unaudited 2Q14 financial report. "I am certainly not thrilled with how some of the things played out this quarter," Lesar said. Nonetheless, the CEO sees a path to profitability in Latin America that depends heavily on Brazil and Mexico. In Mexico, state oil firm Pemex delayed a software consulting blanket order which affected 2Q14 revenues. Halliburton's Mexico activities also experienced disruption due to social opposition. Meanwhile, Brazilian state oil firm Petrobras is retendering a deepwater drilling contract. Assuming the Pemex blanket order and the Petrobras drilling contract come through in the second half, the firm will "continue to target 2014 Latin America margins to be in line with the prior year," the CEO said. Lesar said he is confident that Pemex management will approve the billing currently being submitted by Halliburton and that he expects the Petrobras retender to conclude by early Q4. "I expect a healthy reset as we look ahead to 2015 and beyond." The CEO was positive about Mexico's long-term prospects. "We remain encouraged by the prospect of energy reform in Mexico and believe that as the market gains more certainty around the direction of reform, future service activity will increase," Lesar said. Companywide, Halliburton saw second quarter revenue rise to US$8.051bn from US$7.317bn in the second quarter of 2013. Net income jumped to US$775mn from US$648mn. The results were mainly due to significant activity improvements in North America and the eastern hemisphere, according to Halliburton's 2Q14 financial report.
