Honduras: $160 million in Electricity

The state run company ENEE is selecting enterprises to expand the capacity of the hydroelectric plants Canaveral and Rio Lindo, in the north of the country.

Monday, May 18, 2015

The idea is for funds to be managed through a distribution trust, which would use money raised through the security tax.

The manager of Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctric (ENEE), Roberto Ordonez, explained that "... "Right now, we are carrying out a selection process to find an operator who will make a minimum investment of $200 million for a seven-year contract. '"

Tiempo.hn reports that "... At least nine companies have submitted the required documentation to participate in the selection and the trust bank together with the technical committee will be responsible for ensuring that all processes are run transparently and publicly in order to promote international participation.
