110 MW Tender Process Denounced

Arguing that there is a simulation in the contract to supply photovoltaic solar energy, in Guatemala a group of deputies criminally denounced the officials who approved the bases.

Thursday, August 15, 2019

The complaint against officials of the National Institute of Electrification (Inde) that approved the bases for the tender and other processes of the tender for the purchase of solar energy for 110 MW, was filed by the bench of deputies of Encuentro por Guatemala (EG).

According to Nineth Montenegro, head of the EG bench, "... the complaint is for the supposed simulation of a contract for which they are committing three crimes: breach of duty, abuse of authority and fraud."

Montenegro told Prensalibre.com that "... The complaint responds to the fact that the contract will be executed under the modality BOT (build, finance, operate and transfer) and both the project and the model contract 'do not have the structure or procedures that corresponds to a contract of this nature. The figure of BOT was created for the concession of a service to the State for the period of operation and not the sale of products or inputs during the operation as is intended to do in the project that launched the Inde."

In the tender process, last July 31st Total Eren Guatemala, S.A. and Corporación Klondike, S.A., presented their proposals to the Inde and according to the specifications the supply of Electric Energy Generated by Photovoltaic Solar System, will be divided into five lines with different installed powers:

-Line 1: Installed power of 30 MW, located in the Department of Jutiapa, with delivery point at the "Progreso" substation.
-Line 2: Installed power of 20 MW, located in the Department of Santa Rosa, with delivery point at the "Chiquimulilla" substation.
-Line 3: Installed Power of 30 MW, located in the Department of Jutiapa, with delivery point at the "Pasaco" Substation.
-Line 4: Installed power of 20 MW, located in the Department of Zacapa, with delivery point at the "Zacapa" substation.
- Line 5: Installed power of 10 MW, located in the Department of El Progreso, with delivery point at the "El Rancho" substation.
