Conceded in late 2018, through a consortium with the Chinese company Sinohydro, Cesbe began work on planning the sewage project on the potable water and sewage system in the municipality of Chorrillos, Lima, Peru. The process took place through public bidding for the Safe WaterProgram in Lima and Callao, of the Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation, and involved five other competitors.
The project will have 200 km of water and sewage networks and more than 12 thousand domestic connections. The deadline for completing the project is 30 months and will involve more than 500 employees, direct and indirect.
According to Otton Ferraz Neto, Cesbe’s construction director, part of the challenge of this sanitation project is to run the underground networks within the urban area of Lima, ensuring continuity of service to existing homes.
“The project includes the implementation of 10 new reservoirs and cisterns, as well as the implementing improvements in 18 reservoirs. The drinking water line will be built in cast iron and will be 56 km long. The sewage collection network will be made with HDPE pipes with an extension of 19 km. We will also implement a secondary network of PVC sewage with a length of 98 km”, says Otton.
According to Ocimar Born, Legal Representative of Cesbe Sucursal del Perú, this achievement demonstrates that Cesbe has been successful in expanding its business in the Peruvian market. “The new agreement will help consolidate Cesbe as an important player in the segment of sanitation and power generation,” says Ocimar.
