InfraRed Capital Partners completes sale of Watty Vos Boulevard in Aruba
InfraRed Capital Partners (“InfraRed”) has completed the sale of its 100% interest in the Watty Vos Boulevard Project (“WVB” or “the Project”) to Plenary Americas (“Plenary”).
The Project is a 22½-year concession granted by the Government of Aruba for the design, construction, and financing of a 21km, four lane arterial road between Aruba’s main international airport and the island’s key tourist areas, as well as the provision of operations and maintenance services.
InfraRed acquired an 85% interest in the Project in 2017 through its InfraRed Infrastructure Fund III and the remaining 15% interest in 2021. The original US$67m capex project included the design and construction of a 2×2 lane arterial road of 7km, renovation of the existing road over a length of 14km, and design and construction of 15km of cycle routes and 14 roundabouts and two overpasses.
Construction was completed in October 2019 and the Project became fully operational in December 2020.

“Since acquiring the Watty Vos Project in 2017, InfraRed has worked to develop and operate this strategically located asset to provide greater connectivity on the Island of Aruba. All stakeholders agree that Plenary is a suitable long-term owner for Watty Vos going forward.”
