THE MOTA‐ENGIL GROUP IS NOW PRESENT IN THE CARIBBEAN AREA WITH A ROAD CONTRACT IN ARUBA AMOUNTING
TO 91 MILLION DOLLARS.
ARUBA
Mota‐Engil successfully completed the entry of the  nancial partner InfraRed, with an 85% stake in the concession of the Watty Vos Boulevard project.
Given the growth of tourism in Aruba in
the past few years, the local government researched a way to optimise the connection between Reina Beatrix International Airport and the hotel area at the north of the island, and decided to build a ring road outside
the centre of its capital, Oranjestad. This
is the Watty Vos Boulevard project, a road concession for 22 and a half years that is also the  rst PPP in small islands with a DBFM (design, construction,  nancing and maintenance) contract model.
Mota‐Engil Aruba won this international tender, having completed the Financial Close in February of the last year.
The work is made up of 21 km of roads, between new construction (7 km),
rehabilitation and adaptation of existing roads, 15 km of cycling routes, two overpasses and 18 roundabouts. The volume of earthwork is 180,000 m3, with 121,500 metric tons of aggregates with variable granulometry for base and sub‐base layers, and 53,500 metric tons of bituminous mixtures.
With a construction deadline of 30 months, the works are moving along at a good pace, with Mota‐Engil Aruba showing that it is ahead in the work execution schedule, already at 41% completion at the end of February 2018.
With this project, Mota‐Engil enters a new market, expanding its activity in Latin America.
