Spanish Builder Wins Water Supply Contract for Thirsty Peru City

Sacyr SA, a Spanish builder, and its partners won a 41 million-euro ($55 million) contract to increase water supplies in Cerro de Pasco, a central Peruvian city suffering from shortages and wastewater discharge problems.

The Pasco municipal project includes construction of a new wastewater-treatment plant, modernizing the sewer system, upgrading water-catchment sources and expanding the city’s drinking-water plant, the Madrid-based company said. Sacyr’s current works in Peru include building two hydroelectric plants.
