Angamos Port


Marine and Land Works - Conceptual, Basic and Detail Engineering

Project Sheet:

Complejo Portuario Mejillones S.A. required engineering services for a new port for transfer of of copper cathodes, containers and general cargo. Investment of USD 120,000,000.

PRDW-AV was responsible from preliminary designs for tender (BOT) up to the basic and detail engineering details of all land and maritime works including installations, buildings, field studies and others.

It is noteworthy that these works were subjected to an earthquake with magnitude 7.7 in November 2007, presenting an optimal behavior.
