THE TECHNICAL SOLUTION
The structuring of the South American continent through bioceanic corridors is a challenge for planning engineering. Sponsored by supranational organizations, several projects are currently underway.
These future communication routes - which use both land (road and rail) and river transport - are complex engineering developments capable of surviving in the equatorial forests and overcoming the slopes of the Andes Mountains, with the strategic objective of finally uniting the two oceans.
The Central Bioceanic Railway Corridor is a multinational project that aims to connect the Atlantic and Pacific coasts through the central South American strip. It is a priority public work for Bolivia, which has allocated US$ 7 billion for its construction. It is a project of historical and continental significance.
The current Bolivian railway network is 1,622 kilometres long. It is made up of the Andean Network and the Eastern Network, not connected to each other in the central part of the country, from Santa Cruz to Cochabamba.
This is one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects in the history of Bolivia, since it will allow the development, exploitation and industrialization of its natural resources, as well as an important improvement in its integral communications.
GHENOVA develops the studies of layout and alignment alternatives; preliminary design, construction and operation costs of the 2,100 km of track that runs through Bolivian territory.
A real challenge for infrastructure engineering. A large project (more than 2,100 km long) in areas as diverse as the Bolivian highlands, the Andean mountain range and the flat areas of eastern Bolivia. It integrates a new route with the improvement of the capacities of the already existing ones.
One of the first bioceanic corridors set on the continent.
The designs made in the section that crosses the Andean mountain range are remarkable for its complexity, starting from 400 m. high, ascends to the 4000 m. of the Bolivian highlands.
Multidisciplinary project: GHENOVA has coordinated and integrated all the strategic, environmental and market studies that have been carried out in parallel with our project. The engineering has been adapted to the quality and environmental standards required by the Financial States and Organisations.
Complete trust of the Bolivian Government to carry out the project and knowledge transfer through e-training in various disciplines and ISPOL alignment software.
INTERNAL ASSESSMENT OF THE PROJECT
We provide engineering solutions in highly complex orographic environments.
Intergovernmental coordination. Flexibility in the search for solutions and effectiveness in change management.
Learning about Bolivia's technical and administrative processes. Adaptability to Bolivian and international tools, procedures, regulations and standards.
Knowledge of the Bolivian market. We carry out macro and microeconomic, environmental and social studies, among others.
We have developed this project in accordance with strict social and environmental protocols.
