Autopista del Maipo invertirá US$177 mills. en terceras pistas

La concesionaria de la vía que une Santiago con Talca espera agregar un carril por sentido entre Puente Maipo y bypass Rancagua antes del 2020.

Por Julián Mazzucco

Actualmente, mediante un convenio complementario con el Ministerio de Obras Públicas (MOP), la Autopista del Maipo está llevando a cabo una ampliación a tres pistas por sentido entre el acceso sur a Santiago y el puente Peuco, lo que se denomina tramo dos. 

Se trata de una extensión de 7 kilómetros, que demandará una inversión de US$61 millones.

Pero el plan definitivo es mucho más ambicioso. En el mediano plazo se agregarán dos tramos más con terceras pistas y que, según comentó a PULSO el gerente general de la concesionaria, Miguel Carraco, esperan tener aprobados a mediados de año. 

“Son dos tramo más donde se integraran terceras pistas. El tramo uno (desde Puente Maipo hasta Acceso sur a Santiago) tiene una inversión estimada de UF 1,5 millones (más de US$ 63 millones). El tercero, o sea entre la actual plaza de peaje y el bypass Rancagua, tiene una inversión de UF 1,2 millones (US$ 50,5 millones)”, explicó Carrasco. La inversión de las obras que se están realizando sumadas a las que están en proyecto da un total de unos US$177 millones. 

“Los proyectos de los siguientes tramos de terceras pistas van a estar aprobados a mediados de 2014. Por lo tanto, va a depender de la voluntad de la autoridad de lanzar las licitaciones inmediatamente, de manera de que antes del 2020 podríamos tener el tramo completo con terceras pistas desde el Puente Maipo y bypass Rancagua. Esa sería nuestra aspiración”, agregó Carrasco.

  • Mexican chemical and petrochemical company Mexichem reported a 52% drop in net income in the second quarter to US$50mn from US$105mn in 2Q13. Mexichem's net income was impacted by foreign exchange operations in Venezuela and higher amortization following acquisitions, the company said in its consolidated results report. Net sales were up 7% year-on-year to US$1.46bn, boosted by the performance of resins, compounds and derivatives and integral solutions. In January-June, net income fell 33% year-on-year to US$99mn from US$147mn. Sales rose 8% to US$2.78bn. South America accounted for 30% of the company's total sales in the first six months of this year.

  • Argentina's San Juan provincial government agreed to extend an exploration license held there by national oil company YPF until 2016. The NOC will continue geological analysis in the San José de Jáchal valley to determine its potential for oil and gas production, a company release said. The agreement is part of YPF's 2013-17 Plan Exploratorio Argentina (PEA) program, under which the company plans to evaluate every sedimentary basin in the country. Since the program started, YPF has invested US$12mn in exploration activities in San Juan, mainly in the Tamberías basin.

  • Brazilian manufacturer Weg has revealed plans to increase its participation in the country's burgeoning wind and solar power supply chains. The company has until now focused mainly on producing equipment for local hydroelectric and biomass plants. But the emergence of wind as Brazil's fastest-growing energy source and new opportunities for solar growth have prompted Weg to diversify its operations. "If it is attractive, we will participate more intensively in the wind sector," Weg's investment relations manager Luiz Fernando Oliveira said during an investor webcast. "We have the capacity to increase our presence. If it isn't so attractive, we will look at other types of machinery." Weg signaled its interest in wind expansion in April by agreeing to supply 46 turbines for the 97MW Energia dos Ventos complex in Brazil's northeastern state of Ceará. The Jaraguá do Sul-based firm also provided equipment for Neoenergia's 400kW solar plant on the island of Fernando de Noronha. Weg's deputy CEO Sérgio Schwartz said the company had also found a niche in manufacturing engines for electric buses. But future investment in the area would hinge on greater government incentives and access to credit, he added. Weg reported a second-quarter profit of 228mn reais (US$103mn), up 11% on the year-ago period. Net operating revenue hit 1.82bn reais, up 7.2% year-on-year.
