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.

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.
