Progress continues on construction of the Ninacaca Supply Plant in Pasco

The new Ninacaca Supply Plant, in the Pasco Region, has made an extra 13.25 percent progress in its construction. The facility is being constructed to address the current and projected demand of liquid fuels destined mainly to the central region of the country. In this first phase, priority has been given to local labour.

Among the main activities carried out by the OBS-IMECON consortium, the contractor responsible for the work, are the development of detailed engineering, earthworks and excavations, which constitute the previous phase to the foundation process, located one kilometre from the district of Ninacaca, at more than 4,100 metres above sea level.

It should be noted that at the end of this phase will proceed to the assembly of crude storage tanks, which will have a capacity of 7,500 barrels of three fuels: Diesel B5 (2 thousand barrels), gasoline 90 octane (1,500 barrels) and 84 octane (500 barrels).

Also, the new Ninacaca Supply Plant will have storage capacity for 6,104 barrels of water, to be used in its fire-fighting system; which includes motor pumps, tanks, pipe network, sprinklers, monitors, hydrants, detectors, and fire extinguishers.

The water from the lagoons and rivers of the place has not been used, since the tanker truck service has been contracted from external sources.

For PETROPERÚ, this modern plant will revert to the progress and development of the central zone of the country, including Junín and Huánuco, reaffirming the commitment of the state oil company with the prosperity and improvement of Ninacaca and the Pasco region.
