Honduras: No Progress in Electric Plants Construction

The construction of the 150 MW plants does not progress as expected.

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Two companies, Cecsah (Comercializadora de Electricidad Centroamericana de Honduras) and Vetasa (Vehículos de Trabajo S.A.), have contracts with the National Electric Energy Company (ENEE) for the set up of 150MW coal power generation plants.

However, ENEE informed Laprensahn.com that "there is slowness in the implementation of the contracts" by both companies.

With the aim of correcting the situation, the State ordered meetings by the Operational Committee every 15 days.
