Ferrovial, partner to build Ituango hydro plant tunnels in Colombia

Ferrovial Agroman and engineering company Sainc have been selected to build a powerhouse access tunnel and two river diversion tunnels at the 2,400-MW Ituango hydroelectric power station in Colombia, media outlets reported.

The contract is valued at EUR55 million (about USD77.3 million). 

Ferrovial Agroman – which is Ferrovial’s construction subsidiary – will build two parallel tunnels, both 1 kilometer in length and 14 meters in diameter, to divert water from the Cauca River. The powerhouse access tunnel that is also being built under the contract will be almost 1 kilometer long, with a 140- meter-long gallery.
Construction is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2013.

A consortium of Colombian engineering companies Ingetec and Sedic recently won a US$66.3 million construction contract for the Ituango hydropower project.
