Chile

Since 1996, we have invested 6.5 billion dollars in improving Chile’s infrastructures and services.

We excel in the construction and management of hospital infrastructures 

In 1996, when the P3 system was first launched in this country, we secured our first contract to build and run the toll road between Los Vilos and La Serena. Since then, we have invested close to 6.5 billion dollars in various projects through our three lines of business.

These include 2 airports, 15 roads, and 6 hospitals. Through Sacyr Concesiones Agua, we run four comprehensive water cycle management firms in the regions of Antofagasta and Metropolitana.

Innovating to improve the lives of people

We laid the first road surface in Chile that incorporates pre-treated pulverized rubber (RARx) This innovation allows us to repair and build roads with a lower environmental impact The reason is that this material uses mixtures of polymers from scrapped tires.

It is calculated that, for every km of road built using this technology, it’s possible to save around 100 bus and truck tires from ending up as landfill.

To develop and validate this technique, various trial sections had to be build at different sites managed by Sacyr within the Metropolitan region. 

These kinds of composite materials have already proven their functional and structural advantages, from a social, economic, and environmental perspective, in other countries. They reduce noise pollution, dampening down traffic noise by up to 5 decibels. They also increase the service life of the road surface and give a new lease of life to industrial waste such as scrapped tires, which can be reused to build and repair roads.

Promoting the development and structural organization of the country

Transport infrastructures provide structure and cohesion to a country and generate wealth in the area. The Public-Private partnership working on the Rutas 21 and 24 highways will develop a fundamental pillar in Uruguay’s transport links. These roads are the main corridor for the west coast, concentrating 50% of private vehicle movement in Uruguay.

The Ferrocarril Central is one of the most important railroad projects undertaken in the history of Sacyr, and we are participating through the consortium Grupo Vial Central (GVC). The budget for this project is 1 billion euros and will span 18 years (3 years of construction and 15 years of maintenance).

The road is expected to open fully in 2022 and it has already received numerous awards. These include the prestigious IJ Global award for its finance model.
