The Nicaraguan Electricity Company has put out to tender a feasibility study, final design and tender documents for the ‘La Verbena’ Hydroelectric Project .
According to the specifications, the overall objective of the tender is to hire specialized technical consulting services to prepare a feasibility study, detailed construction design, construction plans, specifications and tender documents for building the Central Mini Hydroelectric plant (MCH ) La Verbena, located in the middle basin of a branch of the river Upa in the Municipality of San Ramón in the Department of Matagalpa.

Products that are monolayer, coextruded and laminated. We also offer photo printing for bags, using up to eight colors, and we have an art and design department that is available to customers so that they do not have to develop the image and label design, which is an important complement to the packaging.

In late 2005, AES began developing the Changuinola hydro power project and currently the project is in the phase of building the roadways to access that facility. The formal cornerstone laying ceremony took place on October 25, 2007.
The project's total completion represents an investment of approximately $563 million and the estimated date for the Changuinola hydro power plant to go into commercial operation is the first quarter of 2011. Through this new facility, AES contributes to the country's development and helps face the growing demand of energy in Panama, which requires an additional 50 MW each year.
The construction of the new Changuinola I Hydro Power Plant:
* is an asset to Panama
* will generate clean and 100% Panamanian energy
* will create opportunities for previously excluded populations
* will contribute to solve the country's energy situation
* will help Panama to continue growing
The construction and operation of the hydro power plant will be under the responsibility of AES, a multinational energy corporation with world-class standards and an active presence in Panama.
