"BMT is structured to fulfill the needs of the new Brazilian telecommunications market with speed, efficiency, and safety," said Ricard Jose Ferreira, president of BMT.

BMT combines Bechtel's ability to mobilize quickly to complete large, complex projects around the world with Método's proven success in the Brazilian telecommunications market. BMT will offer services in cellular systems, microwave, fiber optic, data networks, and public switched telephone networks.

"This is a great opportunity for Bechtel," said Dennis Connell, Bechtel's general manager for Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. "We will be exposed to the local environment with a well-positioned partner, which speeds up the local operational know-how."
