Tender for 110 MW Delayed

Because of the complaints filed in the tender to supply photovoltaic solar energy, the Public Ministry of Guatemala conducted legal proceedings in the headquarters of the Inde, which could affect the continuity of the process.

Monday, August 19, 2019

The legal proceedings were conducted because days ago were filed complaints against officials of the National Institute of Electrification (Inde) who approved the bases for the tender and other processes of the tender for the purchase of solar energy for 110 MW, arguing that there is simulation in the contract.

According to Nineth Montenegro, head of the group of deputies of Encuentro por Guatemala (EG), a political group that filed one of the lawsuits, in this process of public contracting are incurring in the crimes of breach of duties, abuse of authority and fraud.

The Public Prosecutor's Office reported that "... The Public Prosecutor's Office against Corruption carried out investigative diligences in the facilities of the National Institute of Electrification (Inde), following up on two complaints received. Concerning the contracting event called "Supply, Construction, Installation and Commissioning of Solar Photovoltaic Systems up to a maximum of 110 MW."

Prosecutors in coordination with technicians from the Criminal Investigations Directorate compile information and related documents, which will assist in the analysis of the facts reported."

On the other hand, the Inde explained in a statement that "... regarding the diligences carried out by the Public Ministry through the Public Prosecutor's Office against Corruption, it clarifies: that it is respectful of the processes and that the Institution collaborates with what has been requested."

For the tender concerned, the companies Total Eren Guatemala, S.A. and Corporación Klondike, S.A., presented their proposals to the Inde on July 31st and according to the specifications, the supply of Electric Energy Generated Through Photovoltaic Solar System will be divided into five lines with different installed powers:
