SENER Wins Mega Construction Project in Chile

The Chilean company Empresa Portuaria San Antonio has awarded SENER the optimization engineering and the detailed design of protection works, dredging and complementary work of the Outer Port – Puerto de Gran Escala (PGE) – in the Port of San Antonio, 100 km from Santiago de Chile.

This is the fourth port project that SENER has developed in Chile in recent years, which consolidates it as one of the leading engineering companies in the port sector.

The Outer Port PGE San Antonio will be located to the south of the current port, which is why the project covers the construction of a new breakwater, a dock and new esplanades that will provide the two new berthing facilities with the space and protection necessary for an efficient port operation.

The design of the PGE San Antonio, from which basic engineering has currently been developed, includes the construction of two major automatic terminals of containers, called South-1 and South-2, with a berthing length of 1.730 m each, that will allow the simultaneous berthing of four large container ship vessels (Class E) in each of the terminals.

The infrastructure will be completed with an access channel, a stacking area and an inland dock.

In aggregate, SENER will design 3,900 m of breakwater,13 million m³ of dredging, four million m³ of riprap and 13 million m³ of backfill in an area in which the maximum seismic acceleration of design is established around 1 g.
