Tender for the El Cajon Hydroelectric Station is Unsuccessful

The National Electricity Company of Honduras announced that there will be another international tender for repairing leaks at the hydroelectric plant.

Friday, August 24, 2012

The contract to repair the leaks in the power plant "El Cajon", which favoured the company Rodio Swissboring Centroamérica, which bid $39.5 million, has been declared unsuccessful, said the manager of the National Electricity Company (ENEE), Roberto Cardona .

"We are asking for new bidding rules which are consistent with the financial reality of the institution because the ENEE is facing record financial deficit", said the official to Elheraldo.hn

Bids received included one from the company Astaldi S.P.A. for $27.9 million and from Rodio Swissboring Centroamérica for $39.4 million, the latter being the best qualified in the process.
