Venezuela seeks hydrometeorological, limnological studies of hydro

State utility Corporacion Electrica Nacional (Corpoelec) invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform studies of hydrometeorological and limnological measurements associated with hydroelectric generation in Venezuela. Responses are due November 3.

The government has said it is working through Corpoelec to propose 42 power projects to increase installed capacity by nearly 40 percent. Corpoelec unit Electrificacion del Caroni recruited consultants in February to develop an economic recovery plan for the population affected by construction of the 2,320-MW Manuel Piar hydroelectric project.

Corpoelec currently seeks consultants to evaluate the current state of the network of hydrometeorological and limnological measurements and what is needed to cover optimal operation of the infrastructure associated with development, construction, and operation of hydroelectric projects. The study is primarily concerned with the Andes and Guayana regions of Venezuela.

The chosen consultant is to specify equipment, instruments, and personnel to strengthen hydrometeorological and limnological measurements.

Expressions of interest, including a summary of qualifications of no more than five pages, are due by e-mail or delivery to the address below by 4 p.m. November 3.

For information, contact Corpoelec, Attn.: Jannet Garcia, Edificio Torre Las Mercedes, Piso 1, Avenida la Estancia, Chuao, Caracas, Venezuela; Fax: (58) 212-9502218; (58) 212-9502240; E-mail:
