Tender for 110 MW to be Suspended

In Guatemala, the General Comptroller's Office recommended definitively suspending the tender to supply photovoltaic solar energy, because the audit detected weaknesses in the contracting process.

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

The public purchase that the Instituto Nacional de Electrificación (Inde) intended to make was full of controversy, because before the opening of the bids, criminal charges were filed against the officials who approved the bases of the bidding, arguing that there was a simulation in the contract.

In the end, the bidders' proposals were accepted; however, they were disqualified because the two participating companies, Total Eren Guatemala, S.A. and Corporación Klondike, S.A., did not comply with the requirements of the bidding documents.

After auditing the process, the authorities recommend suspending the tender. Monica Monge, Private Secretary of Comptrollership, informed Prensalibre.com that "... in a concurrent audit in which all the phases of the tender process are analyzed, it was detected that it has some weaknesses and therefore it was recommended the definitive suspension of the event launched by the Inde.

Monge added that "... the Comptroller's Office urges the authorities of the National Electrification Institute (Inde), 'if they consider it convenient, to call for a new tender that complies with all the corresponding legal regulations."

According to the bidding specifications, the tender consisted of the supply of Electrical Energy Generated by Photovoltaic Solar System, which would be divided into five lines with different installed powers:

-Line 1: Installed power 30 MW, in the Department of Jutiapa, with delivery point at the "Progreso" substation.
-Line 2: Installed Power 20 MW in the Department of Santa Rosa, with Delivery Point in the "Chiquimulilla" Substation.
-Line 3: Installed Power 30 MW in the Department of Jutiapa, with Delivery Point in the Substation "Pasaco."
-Line 4: Installed power of 20 MW, in the Department of Zacapa, with delivery point at the "Zacapa" substation.
-Line 5: Installed power of 10 MW, in the Department of El Progreso, with delivery point at "El Rancho" substation.
