The government of Honduras announced it plans to seek proposals for electro-mechanical equipment for four small hydroelectric projects.
With support of the European Union’s Asia and Latin America development program, tenders are to be sought by Honduras’ Secretaria Tecnica y de Cooperacion and utility Empresa Nacional de Energia Electrica.
In a supply contract forecast October 9, the government said it expects to seek proposals after 30 days have elapsed. Applications and requests for information should not be sent until formal notices are issued.
The forecast said the government will seek supply and delivery of equipment ï¿½ranging from the guard valve to the substation connectionï¿½ but not including the substation, for the Rio Quilio 2, Rio Yure, Rio Claro, and Rio Cuyamel (Las Champas) projects.
Work is being carried out under an EU-funded program for independent power generation and energy efficiency, Generacion Autonoma y Uso Racional de Energia Electrica (GAUREE). (HNN 3/1/07)
