OCP Ecuador Project.
This project was a challenge especially regarding the environmental obligation and conditions. On the one hand, the construction site was in the middle of the cloud forest in Ecuador, where the climatic conditions were not favorable for a normal construction site; on the other hand, we were in a protective area in Ecuador, and had high environmental obligations – for example the noise limit was very very low.
