Honduras: Tender for Works on Hydroelectric Station Fails

The second tender for repairing the cracks in the El Cajon hydroelectric station has been declared void because bidders lacked the required technical ability.

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

This is the second time that the tender to repair the leaks in the curtain and the rocky walls of the hydroelectric station Francisco Morazán, better known as "El Cajon", has been declared void by Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica (ENEE).

The manager of the ENEE, Emil Hawitt said that this time the tender was declared unsuccessful because those who submitted bids "had problems in the technical scoring."

Benjamin Bográn, private sector representative to the board of ENEE, said that at first the members of the review board determined that the offers were unsatisfactory. "I regret that this situation has happened because 'El Cajon' is national heritage. Three years ago the private sector requested that necessary repairs be made and that they were urgent," he added.
