Argentina, Paraguay extend SCADA bidding for 3,200-MW Yacyreta

The Argentina-Paraguay joint operator Entidad Binacional Yacyreta (EBY) has extended the deadline for pre-qualification to supply a replacement generation control center for the 3,200-MW Yacyreta hydroelectric project on the Parana River. Responses now are due August 18, 2009.

EBY originally invited applications for pre-qualification by July 14. (HydroWorld 6/2/09) It plans to seek detailed engineering, presentation of drawings, calculations, manufacturing, assembly, and testing of a new generation control center and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for electrical protection, and other monitoring and control equipment for Yacyreta.
