Santiago, Chile

A contractor with a strong background in mining projects throughout South America, was awarded the construction of Minera Valle Central of Rancagua. This facility is a crushing and grinding plant dedicated to the production of copper concentrate and its by-products. Under a very aggressive schedule and rigorous safety, plus quality requirements, the contractor contacted EFCO for the best solutions.

EFCO recommended the HAND-E-FORM® system due to its versatility to form the various complicated concrete structures required in the project.
