+100 years building history

Amongst the many projects carried out by the OHL Group over more than one hundred years of history are certain emblematic works in terms of size, complexity, technical innovation or social scope. This section gathers a non-exhaustive catalogue of some of these activities.


A-6, Ambasmestas-Castro/Lamas section (Spain) and Northern Toll Road (Peru)

In 2001, OHL completed the Ambasmestas-Castro/Lamas section, A-6 highway, between Madrid and La Coruña, in Spain. This is a reference work due to its advanced design and its part of the Pan American Highway North, a major road link running along the country´s coast.


Cadiz port (Spain) and Marina Bay d’Alger (Algeria)

In 1913, Obrascón began the construction work of dock 1 of the Reina Victoria pier in Cadiz Port (Spain) and it was inaugurated seven years later. In 2016, OHL first used the Cubipod, a precast element made of mass concrete used as the protection layer of mound breakwaters abroad, in Marina Bay d’Alger Algeria.  It had already been successfully used in the outer harbour of Punta Langosteira in A Coruña and in the ports in Malaga and La Esfinge in Gran Canaria.
