Destination: World's Southernmost Hydropower Project

Sea Box, Inc. recently delivered a multi-unit, two level-housing complex to the remote Patagonian region of Santa Cruz, Argentina.  This is the same area once explored by Charles Darwin.

Consisting of 12 buildings, the complex will serve as long term accommodations for up to 1,800 construction workers taking part in a $4.7B multinational hydropower project. 

At nearly 200 miles from the nearest hardware store and winter temperatures hovering around freezing, Sea Box designed each unit to provide comfort and functionality while withstanding the rigors of the environment. 

With such a remote location, logistical coordination was paramount.  For perspective, Argentina’s largest city, Buenos Aires is 1,900 miles away – that’s further than Bangor, Maine to Miami, Florida.  All 456 modules arrived on time and were closely supervised by Sea Box every step of the journey. 

The hydropower project consists of 2 separate dams, The Cóndor Cliff Dam and La Barrancosa Dam.  They are situated along the Santa Cruz River 50 miles apart.  Work is progressing rapidly, and it is estimated that in less than two years the direct workforce will exceed 5,000.  The combined capacity will be 1,310 megawatts and will provide 4% of the total electrical consumption for the entire country of Argentina (pop. 45 million).  Completion is scheduled for 2023 and 2024.
