Simon Bolivar Hydropower Project

Venezuela's national utility further extended the deadline for expressions of interest for engineering services to modernize six turbine-generators of the 10,300-MW Simon Bolivar hydroelectric project. It also called for bids to supply emergency response and environmental protection supplies for the project.

Corporacion Electrica Nacional S.A. (Corpoelec) now seeks expressions of interest by January 16, 2015, to provide engineering services for modernization of six units of Simon Bolivar, located at Guri Dam on Venezuela's Caroni River.

Corpoelec awarded a contract October 14 to Dongfang Electric Machinery Co. Ltd. of China to supply the equipment for comprehensive modernization of the six turbine-generators. The utility recruited firms in August to perform factory inspection of equipment.

The utility now invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform engineering services including assistance in evaluation of equipment and facilities, development of design plans, review of manufacturers' plans, and survey and updating of technical documentation.
