Possible Extension of Energy Tender in El Salvador

The Superintendency of Electricity and Telecommunications is evaluating ​​extending the deadline until July so as to receive more offers in the tender for the generation of 350 MW in the country.

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Elsalvador.com reports that "seven companies of international capital collected the requirements to participate in the tender process for power generation, which is divided into two blocks of 250 and 100 MW based on the requirements of the distribution network operating in the country. "

The Superintendency of Electricity and Telecommunications (Siget) could extend until the end of July the deadline so as to get more offers and consider the charges to be billed and form that they will deliver the supply.

The idea is to sign the contract with the winning investor group in late September 2013. "The Siget is ready for the arrival of new capital and we believe that an extension will be allowed. In the meantime, we are receiving comments and, if possible, we will make some of the terms of reference more flexible," said Roberto Gonzalez, CEO at DelSur (the distributor representing the entire industry in the competition).
