On March 5 bids will be received for the tender for short-term energy in the amount of 560 MW for Energuate and Empresa Electrica de Guatemala (EEGSA) so that it can meet demand from May 2014 to April 2017. Some 11 companies have acquired the bidding rules.

"355 MW are needed to cover the period 1 May 2014 to 30 April 2015, and 205 MW for the seasonal periods from 2015 to 2017."

" ... The big difference will be contracting more and getting better competition and changing the energy system to reduce dependency on bunker fuel," said Carlos Rodas, planning manager at EEGSA.

In addition, it was reported that "for the long-term contract PEG 3 receipt of bids was extended until April, although both companies asked the National Energy Commission for a further extension to June. For this tender there are 32 companies interested in which 250 MW are needed to cover 15 years starting from 2017."
