Chaparral Dam Construction Delayed
Due to project delays Salvadoran regulators are examining the possibility to extend the original deadline for the opening of the hydro power plant.
Tuesday, February 22, 2011
Hydroelectric Executive Commission of Río Lempa (CEL), the concessionaire of the project, said the dam would begin production January 2015 and not January 2014 as originally planned.
The Salvadoran regulator has granted a period of two years for the submission of a redesign of the project, currently on hold.
The problems detected could lead Cel and the Astaldi consortium, responsible for the project, to submit for international arbitration.
In El Salvador, tropical storm Agatha has caused floods which forced the contractor to temporary suspend the construction of this hydroelectric power plant.
The president of CEL announced that the project is going according to schedule, and will be ready in January 2013.
