Peru’s investment agency, ProInversion, invites applications for pre-qualification to build the 530-MW Majes-Siguas irrigation and hydroelectric complex. Responses are due November 9.
A notice from ProInversion, reported by Business News Americas, said the agency would release the names of pre-qualified firms November 16. It said ProInversion has yet to set a schedule for pre-qualified bidders to submit final offers. The agency delayed an earlier bid date of August 31. (HNN 6/5/06)
Majes-Siguas is the second stage of the Majes project, which began a decade ago with construction of Condoroma Dam. It has three components, construction of Angostura Dam and a 16-kilometer water tunnel, irrigation infrastructure to supply 42,000 hectares, and construction of the 98-MW Tarucani, 116-MW Lluta, and 316-MW Lluclla hydroelectric plants on the Siguas River.
ProInversion previously said two Peruvian and three foreign companies had bought rights to participate in the concession auction.
Already under way is a request for bids by November 17 from engineering consultants to assist in concession tendering for a portion of the irrigation and hydroelectric complex. (HNN 10/10/06)
