This month, it will be ten years since Ayesa, the international engineering and technology consulting firm, established a permanent presence in Peru, since going on to become a leading firm in the region.
The firm has accompanied the country in its transformation over the past decade, during which time its economy has doubled in size and the quality of its public infrastructure network has improved significantly.
Over this period, Ayesa has taken part in more than 90 projects. Although its initial work in Peru mainly involved the development of La Pampilla refinery and hydraulic projects in the north of the country, the company soon added technology and highway engineering to its portfolio.
As such, in 2014 Ayesa was awarded its first major contract, involving the drafting of the construction project for Line 2 of the Lima Metro. This was followed by major projects, such as the supervision of the Gasoducto Sur Peruano (Great Southern Gas Pipeline), technology contracts for Enel and the supervision of construction of Line 1 of the Lima Metro.
Javier Rodríguez, Country Manager for Peru and Colombia at Ayesa, highlights how these projects ‘allowed the subsidiary to grow and become one of the group’s most important’.
The firm’s portfolio in Peru has continued to expand through airport projects, metro contracts (such as the drafting of the project for the branch line of Line 4 of the Lima Metro), new clients in the Knowledge Technology Area and major infrastructure contracts (including the supervision of the cable-stayed bridge over the Huallaga River). Also noteworthy is its work with Petroperú, involving carrying out engineering work and providing supervision services for the Gasoducto Norperuano (Great Northern Gas Pipeline).
‘Ayesa Peru is eager to grow with the country and to do this, we must be a part of the modernisation and digitalisation of its cities. Our aim is to continue to participate in projects designed to create a more modern, more accessible and more developed country’, concludes Javier.
