It is part of Odebrecht Infraestrutura’s task not to let Brazil get off track – nor on the road or the navigation route. Its 33,000 Members, all based in the country, carry out important projects in the sectors of transport and logistics, mining, sanitation, sports arenas and irrigation, which are essential for the development of Brazil, including, among others:
- Marine equipment
In addition to providing engineering and construction services, the company participates as an investor and operator in new business through Odebrecht TransPort, focusing on concessions in the road, urban transport, logistics infrastructure (port and pipeline) and airport sectors.
The company has accumulated experience in major works, such as sections of the São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro subways, expansion of the railway pears of Carajás and Ponta da Madeira and the construction and duplication of the D. Pedro I Highway (SP) .
Odebrecht Infraestrutura is building three arenas for the 2014 World Cup, in Bahia, Pernambuco and São Paulo, and is renovating the Maracanã Stadium, in Rio de Janeiro. At its peak, the four works will generate around 8,000 direct job opportunities.
Some highlights in 2011:
- Progress on the construction work for the shipyard, the naval base and the metallic structures manufacturing unit of the Submarine Development Program (Prosub) of the Brazilian Navy, in Itaguaí (RJ).
- Construction of the Embraport Terminal, the largest multi-purpose terminal in the country, in the Port of Santos (SP).
- Beginning of the Transnordestina Railway superstructure works, with construction sites in the states of Pernambuco, Piauí and Ceará, where around 10,000 people work.
In 2011, Odebrecht Infraestrutura was also recognized by Carta Capital magazine as the most admired company in Brazil in the construction sector, and as a leader among the 500 largest companies in the same sector, by O Empreiteiro magazine .
