Costa Rica seeks construction supervision for 305.5-MW Reventazon

Costa Rica’s electric utility invites expressions of interest from consultants to provide construction supervision for the 305.5-MW Reventazon hydroelectric project in Costa Rica. Responses are due September 26.

The Inter-American Development Bank approved a US$670 million loan in May to finance design, construction, operation, and maintenance of Reventazon, to be built on the Reventazon River in the Siquirres area of Limon Province. Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) awarded contracts to Andritz Hydro Gmbh and Sistemas de Potencia de Centroamerica S.A. for equipment, and Cemex for cement work.

ICE now seeks expressions of interest from consultants to supervise construction of Reventazon, which includes a 130-meter-tall, 527-meter-long concrete-faced rockfill dam, a 1.68-kilometer water transport tunnel, and a powerhouse containing four Francis turbine-generators.

Expressions of interest and qualifications, in Spanish, are due by mail or e-mail to the following address by 9 a.m. September 26. If an expression of interest is submitted by e-mail, the original document must be submitted within six business days to the address below.
