The consortium composed of Sacyr, Mota Engil and Ocho A has submitted the only proposal for the expansion and improvement of routes 2 and 7 project under the PPP model, in Paraguay.

In early May, we reported that Paraguay's Ministry of Public Works and Communications (MOPC) announced that the opening of proposals for the expansion and improvement of routes 2 and 7 in Paraguay, which was planned for April 28th, had been extended until June 29th after bidders interested in the project requested it.

The project involves the capacity duplication of 142 km of the route 2, and the capacity duplication between Km 30 and Km 183 of the route 7.

The project has an investment estimated at US$400 million.

As we reported in May 2015, a total of eleven teams were pre-qualified for the road project:

  • Iridium Concesiones De Infraestructuras S.A. (ACS Group),
  • Obrascon Huarte Lain S.A,
  • Tradeco Infraestructura S.A. de C.V.,
  • Consorcio Roggio (BENITO Roggio E Hijos S.A. Argentina - Benito Roggio E Hijos S.A. Paraguay),
  • Sacyr Concesiones S.L.,
  • Grupo Isolux Corsan Concesiones S.A.,
  • Iecsa S.A,
  • Construccion y Administracion S.A.,
  • Consorcio Ruta Esperanza (ILSUNG Construction Co Ltd. - Korea Expressway Corporation),
  • Odebrecht Latinvest España S.L and
  • Mota -ENGIL Engenharia E Construcao S.A.

However, only one team finally submitted a proposal for the project.

The project is expected to be the first infrastructure project to be carried out as a public-private partnership (PPP) under the country's recently-passed PPP law.

We recently published that Paraguay's Public Works and Communications Ministry (MOPC) has received three proposals for the Asunción's Silvio Pettirossi international airport upgrade project and has begun the technical review of the bids. This is the first airport project carried out under public private partnership PPP in the country. The bidding teams were Vinci, Cedicor SA and Sacyr Concesiones.
