OHL has focused on international port projects from the very start. The Alcántara Inner Basin, in the Port of Lisbon, and the West Pier of the Port of Santos, also in Lisbon, were the first contracts awarded to its parent company, Obrascón, in 1912.

Ever since, the company has been amassing wide-ranging, outstanding experience developing all phases of maritime and coastal projects: design, construction, maintenance and operation.
