Strabag and GHH form alliance in the building of the 530MW Alto Maipo hydroelectric power plant - currently the largest construction project in Chile.
The river has its source at over 3000 meters high in the snow-covered Andes. It reaches the Pacific Ocean after 250 km. On its way, it overcomes a considerable gradient and is, therefore, ideally suited to generate electricity. Santiago’s need for energy is great as the conurbation has over 7 million inhabitants. Around 44% of Chileans live here, making it the political and economic heart of the country.
