New Date for Tender for 350MW in El Salvador

The General Superintendency for Electricity has set a new date, February 9th 2012, for the deadline for submission of bids for the long term supply of 350MW.

Thursday, January 12, 2012

With this move the regulator has ruled in favor of the company Cutuco Energy who appealed against a change in the date.

"According to the timetable set by SIGET for this contest, which is led by DelSur, financial bids should have been received from the generators interested by Jan 6th 2012.

A month earlier, on December 6th 2011, bidders were notified by DelSur of a change approved by the regulator: the deadline for receipt of bids would be moved to April 18th, 2012 and not 6th January as stated in the tender specifications.

However, on January 6th SIGET ‘s Board of Directors agreed to revoke the agreement, according to a statement by Cutuco, and set a new date for receipt of bids, February 9th", reported
