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.

  • Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA said that processing of Lagotreco crude oil at El Palito refinery grew 26% in 2014. The refinery also co-processed 1,625t of spent catalysts and 608t of hydrocarbon-impregnated soil, the NOC said in a release. El Palito has a maintenance stoppage scheduled this year, as well as works to improve its effluents and sulfur recovery plants.

  • Peru, the world's third largest copper, zinc and tin producer and also an exporter of natural gas, fishmeal and coffee, will grow less than originally forecast this year due to slumping commodities prices, finance minister Alonso Segura said Thursday. GDP growth will probably be closer to the central bank's forecast of 4.8% for 2015, down from the finance ministry's earlier prediction of 5-5.5% growth, Segura said. The economy expanded 2.4% last year compared with 5.1% in 2013, he said. "It would be demagoguery to claim that Peru could grow 6-7%. That isn't possible in the medium term," Segura said at the Bloomberg Summit in Lima. "The situation is challenging, but the Peruvian economy will grow twice as much as last year and lead the region." The government, which plans to sell 3bn soles (US$1bn) this year to help finance infrastructure investments, is cutting taxes and will increase public spending in infrastructure projects including 22 public-private partnerships to be awarded in concessions this year and which represent 3.6% of GDP, Segura said. Peru, which has lined up US$62bn in mining investment projects over the next decade, has an "interesting portfolio," Segura said. Falling crude oil prices and the devaluation of the Peruvian sol, which fell 6% against the US dollar last year, will help spur growth by aiding exporters and cutting industry costs, he said. Peru is a net oil importer. "Today the mining industry faces a complex situation worldwide," Segura said. "Some projects will probably be delayed due to prices." Peru has room to cut interest rates further to help spur growth, central bank president Julio Velarde said at the same event. The bank earlier this month cut its benchmark lending rate to 3.25% from 3.50% after the economy grew just 0.3% in November, the slowest rate in nearly six years.

  • Located in the municipality of La Ligua in central Valparaíso region (V), the Doña Carmen energy complex will combine five different technologies to supply 170MW of clean energy to Chile's central SIC grid. The project is carried out by local developer Imelsa and its first phase calls for the construction of a US$67mn photovoltaic solar plant with an installed capacity of 40MW. The company has filed an EIA with Chilean environmental authorities, expects construction works to begin by mid-year and the plant to come online in December. Three other plants within the complex will combine pyrolysis and biomass to produce synthetic diesel, generating 22MW of electricity in the process though nine diesel-fueled generators. The plants will use non-recyclable plastic, tires and guano from a neighboring industrial poultry farm. Investment for the three plants is set at US$79mn with a reviewed EIA being filled early this year. Works include the construction of a 23kW internal transmission line, a 23/220kV step-up substation and a tap-off substation that will supply the central SIC grid at the Los Vilos-Nogales stretch. The Doña Carmen energy complex will have an installed capacity of 170MW. (CREDIT: Imelsa) To strengthen the local energy supply, the company is also developing a back-up 70MW diesel plant that will run 1,000 hours per year and require an investment of US$43mn. In addition, the Doña Carmen project calls for a wind farm and a natural gas GNL/diesel plant, with EIAs to be filled in the near future, Imelsa's business manager Carlos Álvarez told BNamericas. Imelsa is financing the US$228mn project with up to 90% of the capital coming from local distributor Saesa and Swiss solar firm Etrion. The company is developing over 70 projects nationwide and plans to bring - and operate - over 1,500MW to the grid by 2017.
