Peru: Infrastructure Consultancy Tenders


Pre-Investment Study Tender – Tacna Railway

A railway connecting Peru’s Tacna city with Chile’s Arica city is back on the Peruvian Infrastructure agenda.  Peru has launched a tender for pre-investment studies to overhaul the rail.

Originally built in the 1800s, the rail service was suspended in 2012 due to outdated infrastructure including wooden tracks, rolling stock built in the 1940s and incomplete signage.

The aim of the pre-investment studies is to generate various project options, factoring in supply and demand, technical, operation and maintenance costs and environmental impacts, according to tender documents posted by private investment promotion agency ProInversión.

The rail is used for transporting both cargo and passengers. Its main track stretches 60km and passes through strategic sectors such as the Peruvian dock in Arica, Tacna international airport and Tacna’s historical center.

Interested firms have until June 27 to submit bids.

Pre-Investment Study Tender – Lima Metro

Peru is moving forward with the development of its metro project for capital Lima, tendering the pre-investment studies for line 3.

The pre-investment studies are to ultimately determine the ideal design and route for line 3, taking into consideration economic feasibility.

Specifically, the consultancy will need to estimate line 3’s demand and carry out a diagnostic of the current transportation system in Lima and how the metro’s third line will be integrated into the system, according to tender documents posted by private investment promotion agency ProInversión.

The consultancy works have a referential budget of US$21.9mn and interested firms have until July 16 to submit their bids.

When complete, Lima’s metro system will have six lines with over 130km of underground tunnels. Currently, phase one of line 1 is in operation, with the second phase set to begin testing operations in July. In addition, ProInversión awarded the US$6.5bn Lima metro line 2 concession earlier this year.

The government has said it aims to concession lines 3 and 4 before the current administration leaves office in 2016.
