OHL is awarded new projects in California and Texas for close to 80 million euros

The OHL Group, through its subsidiary OHL USA, Inc. has been awarded two new projects in California and Texas for 77,8 million euros ($94.7 million dollars).

In California, OHL is awarded the 48 million euros ($58 million) Newhope-Placentia Trunk Sewer Replacement Project by Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD). This public agency provides wastewater collection, treatment and recycling services for approximately 2.5 million people in central and northwest Orange County and processes an average of 700 million litres of wastewater daily.

This project will increase the size of the Newhope Trunk Sewer on State College Blvd. The company will install a larger diameter sewer pipeline to replace the existing pipeline. This phase of the project will replace six kilometers of sewer, of a total of over eleven kilometers.

In Texas, the company was awarded a 29.8 million-euro ($36.7 million) contract by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The project consists of one lane roadway widening from SH45 to US290 (14 km-9 miles) of SH 130. It includes the construction of 12 bridges (117,000 square meters of deck), 134,000 square meters concrete paving, 155,000 cubic meters of excavation and installing ITS fiber through 24 kilometers of duct bank.

Relevant works in USA

The OHL Group entered the USA market in 2006. Presently, the company operates in nine states: Florida, New York, New Jersey, Texas, California, Illinois, Connecticut, Virginia and Massachusetts and in the District of Columbia. One of the most important projects is the improvement of highway I-405 from State Route 73 to Interstate 605 in California, which is the most important contract in the history of the company in the United States. To this, we must add projects such as the Canarsie Tunnel and other projects in the New York Subway; the construction of the innovation center at Miami Dade College; civil work at the O’Hare International Airport in Chicago or the replacement of the sewage outlet pipe of the Bergen Point wastewater treatment plant in Babylon, the first OHL project in Long Island.
