Ferrovial wins contract to build control tower at new Lima airport
A consortium formed by Ferrovial Construction, Acciona and local construction company JJC has been selected by LAP (Lima Airport Partners), the Peruvian airport operator, to build the control tower at Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima and six ancillary buildings, all of them located in Lima, Peru.
The project, which is part of Lima airport’s expansion plan, comprises a control tower, a services building to support the control tower, and a power switching and transformer building, which will also house the beacon system.
The contract also comprises the construction of a fire-fighting building and a fauna control unit, which will house birds of prey and other fauna that stray into the airport, as well as the drinking water mains and sewer network.
The 65-meter tower, to be built of reinforced concrete and steel pillars, is due to come into operation in 2022. The project provides for the construction of 3,100 m² of floor space, including the new tower (1,600 m²) and ancillary buildings (1,500 m²) to house the operational facilities.
The contract covers all the civil and electromechanical engineering for the tower and its ancillary facilities, as well as all the building’s systems, services and installations. However, it does not include specialized communications, navigation and air traffic control systems.
The project strengthens Ferrovial’s focus on Peru in a category in which it has extensive experience. Specifically, the company built the control towers at Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport in Madrid, El Prat Airport in Barcelona and Chopin Airport in Warsaw, Poland, among others.
Ferrovial, a leading global infrastructure operator, is committed to developing sustainable solutions. It is a member of Spain’s blue-chip IBEX 35 index and is also included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and FTSE4Good; all its operations are conducted in compliance with the principles of the UN Global Compact, which the company adopted in 2002.
