El Salvador: Only Two Companies Bid in 355 MW Tender

AES Fonseca Energía LTO de CV and Asocio Quantum-GLU submitted their technical and financial bids in the tender organized by Del Sur.

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

"The technical bids will immediately be reviewed by the evaluation committee of the distributors, advised by a group of prestigious local consultants who will look at the legal issues, especially technical and financial ones," said the general manager of the Del Sur, Roberto Gonzalez.

"... In 2012, the AES Fonseca had indicated it would withdraw from the competition due to a city ordinance that prevents the construction of power plants based on coal and gas. The mayor said that, once it is known what type of projects are to be developed, it will consider issuing another ordinance that will invalidate the first one. "
