09 de Junho de 2016 - CHALLENGE IN THE ANDES

AVG is preparing itself for a big challenge in its history: Perform the largest Raiseboring Scope ever excavated in Americas.


In middle of 2015, AVG PERFURAÇÕES started the very first negotiations with the Peruvian company CIA MINERA CASAPALCA (polimetal miner) to excavate a shaft of 5.5m in diameter and 1,345m in total length, in the heart of Peruvian Andes, at 5,200m altitude.


In May 2015, AVG SHAFT TECHNOLOGIES S.A. was born.


Now, with equipment and machinery in Peruvian Territory, AVG is preparing to start drilling activities, which shall happen in in the next weeks. A Multifunctional Team was assigned for this Project: They are Brasilians, Peruvians and Chileans full dedicated to the Project, all in love with Raiseboring.


Select the Team to respond to the complex of the scope was the biggest challenge. The criteria to select the Supervisors and Engineers directed involved in the Project was minimum of 15 years of experience in at least 03 countries, which ensured the multicultural aspect of the Team, super important for Project.


The informal conversation during the coffee break always turn into excited speeches, reviving experiences from 10, 15 years ago, which took places in far places, such as Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil and Peru.


Considering the experience of the Team, its passion and motivation, the challenge decreased and do not scare us” says Flávio Salvo, Administrative Manager.
