Suppliers named for 305-MW Reventazon hydroelectric facility

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica 1/26/12 (PennWell) -- Costa Rica utility Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) has awarded contracts to Andritz Hydro Gmbh and Sistemas de Potencia de Centroamerica S.A. for work on the 305.5-MW Reventazon hydropower project.

The contracts stipulate that Andritz will provide four Francis turbines, auxiliary generators, control systems and balance of plant, while Sistemas de Potencia will provide a main bridge crane.

Bids were last sought in March 2011, shortly before ICE named Cemex as principal cement supplier for the first phase of the project.

The project is part of Costa Rica's 2011-2014 national development plan, which says the facility should begin operations by 2016.

Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.
