“We are now in the middle of the MAPA project, which is by far the most important project Arauco has ever had, so we are very excited about it. We are making sure we all do our very best,” says Patricio Henriquez, Arauco´s Engineering and Construction Division Director.
“Currently, we have more or less 200 people from Arauco working here; this includes our site administration together with all our site supervisors and Health & Safety people. The main goal of this huge project is that it ends with zero accidents, as well as to have a successful project with a smooth start-up.”
A seasoned project director, Henriquez, has been working at Arauco for 30 years, taking care of the largest and most important projects related to the company’s forest industry product areas. “At the moment we are still in the preparation stage and starting with the civil works. We have already hired the principal and main construction companies and equipment erection will also begin shortly.”
