    Construction of new pipeline in Valadares

    The OEC will be one of three companies responsible for the installation of pipes for the new pipeline in Governador Valadares, Minas Gerais. The construction of the new pipeline will create a total of 550 jobs at works peak, in the first semester of 2021. The jobs are: foreman assistant carpenter, bricklayer, builder, truck driver, equipment operator, plumber, mechanic, electrician, painter, welder and mason helper. The jobs are already available at Sine (National Employment System) of Governor Valadares for registration.

    The OEC will be responsible for installing pipes, crossings over rivers and streams, and water collection; Praeng Engenharia will take care of the crossings over railroads; And Remo Engenharia will be responsible for the work’s transmission lines  (electricity). Renova Foundation will be responsible for supervising and managing the entire process. The hiring of each construction company followed a rigorous analysis of technical capacity, financial health and integrity, approved by Renova Foundation’s governance, in order to allow the delivery with quality and technical accuracy.

    Governador Valadares’ new pipeline will take water from the Rio Corrente Grande to the Water Treatment Plants (ETAs) of the districts of Santa Rita, Vila Isa and Central Region. It will be able to supply 900 liters of water per second, in order to serve the seat of the city of Governador Valadares under the terms of the TTAC (Transaction and Conduct Adjustment Term).

    New water supply system in Montes Claros

    The Official Gazette of Minas Gerais published last Tuesday (06) the result of the public tender carried out by Copasa for the project to implement the Water Supply System in the Municipality of Montes Claros – Sistema São Francisco. OEC was declared the winner of the event with a global price proposal of R$ 209,6 million. The project will be financed by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and will have a period of 16 months to complete. Around 240 jobs will be created in the region, with the hiring of primarily local labor.

    This new supply system will expand the existing one in the city, which started operating in 1974 and has updates in last years. The project foresees the collection of water from the São Francisco River in the municipalities of Ibiaí with floating pumps, with the adduction crossing the municipality of Coração de Jesus. 92.5 km of pipelines with diameters ranging from 700 to 600 mm will be built, four pumping stations with a reservoir of 1,000 cubic meters and a 2MVA substation, 13 unidirectional feed tanks (TAUs), two transition boxes, a water treatment station , sand extractor, chemical house and the connection of the pipeline to the distribution reservoir of ETA Pacuí, which is already in operation. In addition, the contract provides for commissioning, pre-operation and assisted operation of the implanted system.

    For Clebio Batista, OEC Contract Manager responsible for the work, a gradual heating up of the infrastructure sector is noticeable. “This is the sixth contract that OEC has won in the last five months, between public and private customers. The prospect of further acceleration in the sector due to the new Sanitation Framework is also positive”, he points out.

    Industry history

    Construction – OEC has a wide and significant history of operations in the sanitation sector. The company is responsible for the construction of more than 250 treatment plants, pumping and lifting stations, 157 kilometers of outfalls and more than 5,700 kilometers of pipes, in addition to more than a thousand kilometers of channels.

    Operation – In 2008, Odebrecht Ambiental was created, consolidating water and sewage concessionaires already belonging to the group. After a process of strong investment and expansion in cities in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Bahia, Pernambuco, Maranhão, Goiás, Tocantins and Pará, it became the largest Brazilian private company in the sanitation sector, sold in 2016 to a Canadian group.
