Pre-qualification extended to build Bolivia's 80-MW Misicuni

Bolivia utility Empresa Nacional de Electricidad (ENDE) has extended the deadline for applications for pre-qualification to build the 80-MW Misicuni multipurpose hydroelectric project. Responses now are due March 15.
The utility previously invited pre-qualification by January 31.

The Inter-American Development Bank, which is lending US$101 million, named Canadian and Bolivian firms in February to provide support to the Misicuni multi-purpose project. RSW of Canada received a US$150,000 contract and Servicons Geotechnics of Bolivia received a US$52,600 contract. ENDE solicited other consultants in December 2010 to provide technical supervision of construction in Bolivia's Cochabamba Valley.

ENDE now invites applications for pre-qualification to build a tunnel extension, tunnel liner, surge shaft, safety valve, penstock, powerhouse with two 40-MW Pelton turbines, and a re-regulation reservoir.

Pre-qualification documents, in Spanish, may be obtained from the address below. Applications for pre-qualification now are due by 3 p.m. March 15, in a sealed envelope labeled "Solicitud de precalificacion para la Contratacion del Diseno, Suministro y Construccion de las Obras de la Central Hidroelectrica Misicuni."
