Nicaragua seeks equipment for 300-kW Florida

Nicaragua’s Ministerio de Energia y Minas seeks bids to equip the 300-kW Florida hydroelectric project at Waslala, in Nicaragua’s Region Autonoma Atlantico Norte Department. Bids are due October 30, 2009.

With funding from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the United Nations Development Program, the government called for bids under a program for development of small-scale hydropower in areas not currently served by Nicaragua’s transmission grid. The energy and mines ministry called in July for feasibility studies and final design of four small hydro projects under the program. (HydroWorld 7/7/09)

The ministry now seeks bids from companies specializing in manufacture and installation of small hydropower equipment. The Florida project contract does not include civil works.

Bid documents may be obtained by e-mail request to Coordinador del Proyecto Ing. Ivan Ortega at the address below, with copies to Ing. Elias Juarez and Lic. Aura Maria Gonzalez.

Bids, in Spanish, are due by 10 a.m. October 30. For information, contact Ministerio de Energia y Minas, Ing. Ivan Ortega, Coordinador del Proyecto, Del Hospital Bautista, 1 cuadra abajo, 120 varas al Lago, Managua, Nicaragua; E-mail:;,
