Being a seismic country, Chile cannot afford to a have pity infrastructure. We just can't. Therefore Civil Works, Mechanical, Structure, Mining and other Engineering disciplines are toughly trained to overcome the rage of Mother Nature.
In February 2010 Chile suffered one of the biggest earthquakes that mankind has recorded. 8.8 degrees crushed over Chile's southern region on a Saturday's morning. 156 human lives where lost in the event and about ten buildings in the whole country where severely damaged. 24 hrs later all Global Delivery Centers where in operation, all of the International Excellence Centers and Shared Services Centers where up and going, all contingency plans were fulfilled up to compliance.
In July 2010, 33 miners were trapped in a Copper mine in the north of the country, 700 meters below surface. What could have been another sad story in the mining industry, in Chile turned out to be a magnificent testimony of courage, strength and professionalism. 'We the 33 are good and alive' encouraged the nation's pride for our fellow miners, and the rescue was seen worldwide as one of the happiest stories of 2010.
Chilean Engineering is something you can trust. Proven the hard way, count on Chilean talent, the kind of talent that can anticipate, provide and solve complex, hard, dangerous endeavors.
The Offshoring Programme is helping Engineering Companies to provide services based on their Chilean footprint, at this moment, Mine Design, Exploration and Facility Planning are among the top performers, but there is room in the Talent Pool for other activities.
