The water resources agency for Italy’s Calabria Region has awarded a contract for construction of a pressure conduit for the San Salvatore hydroelectric project on the Menta River.
Societa Risorse Idriche Calabresi SpA (So.Ri.Cal.) awarded a contract valued at 13 million euros (US$19 million) to ATI Costituenda Vincenzo Restuccia-Impianti e Costruzioni srl.
So.Ri.Cal. had requested bids in separate solicitations for civil works to install pressure conduit and to supply and install electro-mechanical equipment for San Salvatore, which is to be built at the existing Menta Dam on the So.Ri.Cal. water supply system. (HNN 8/7/07)
