Argentina: four groups bid to build Argentinas Chihuido1 hydroproject

Officials from Argentines agencies opened on October 8th financial proposals from four consortia bidding to construct the 637mw Chihuido 1 hydroelectric project on the Neuquen River. The ministry of federal planning, has requested technical and financial bids, four groups - submitted financial bids after pre-qualification based on the technical bids. An evaluation committee is to determine the winning bidder.

Chihuido 1 involves the construction of a 105-foot-tall dam across the Neuquen River and a hydro plant with four 159.25-MW Francis turbines. A reservoir is to be constructed for flood control, drinking water, irrigation and industrial water. A 130-kilometer transmission line is to connect the facility to the national grid. Five groups submitted expressions of interest to build the then-478-MW project in 2009. However, Neuquen Province, which sponsored the initial solicitation, canceled it for failure to meet requirements to carry out the work. Argentina's Ministry of federal planification, now seeks bids to construct the 478-MW project over four years at an estimated cost of US$2.1 billion. Ministry officials previously promoted the project in a development road show to Russia, China and Brazil.
