The sound of the dam at the Cerro del Águila Hydroelectric Station in Huancavelica doesn’t keep Víctor from telling us how proud he is of his work and of the cohesion he has achieved in his team. Thanks to their effort, power is supplied to four million Peruvian homes.
“Through my work I’m making a contribution to my country” is one of the comments Víctor repeats most during the interview. He recalls that he began working for Graña y Montero over twelve years ago as a field assistant on the construction of the second section of the Huacho – Pativilca project. Now, after working on eight projects, he has the experience required to head the Risk Prevention area.
As he tells us his story, he is happy and nostalgic remembering the people who have accompanied him along the way. He is grateful to them for having inspired his work: “I learn from each person, so I involve everyone. Also, it’s gratifying when you run into one of them and they tell you, ‘Boss, I learned a lot at Graña. Thanks.’ They acknowledge what the company teaches them and how we’re concerned about their safety,” he said.
Víctor is more than satisfied with the work he does, not only because it contributes major infrastructure projects to his country, but also because it allows him to teach and watch out for safety of the people on his team. “It gives me great satisfaction to end each work day without incident. Every worker makes it home safe and sound to hug the family waiting there,” he said in closing.
