Mexico opens bidding to build 750-MW La Yesca

Mexico's Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) seeks bids by September 28 for construction of the 750-MW La Yesca hydroelectric project on the Santiago River.

CFE scheduled a site visit May 25 and an informational meeting June 8, Business News Americas said, quoting Mexico's Diario Oficial de la Federacion.

To be located at Hostotipaquillo in Jalisco State, La Yesca is to include a 210-meter-tall concrete-faced rockfill dam, a basin of 12 million cubic meters, and an underground powerhouse containing two 375-MW turbine-generators. Bidding is to include civil, electro-mechanical, and associated work.

The winning bidder is to have access to a development bank loan, to help cover investment in the estimated US$850 million project, under CFE's financed public works scheme. CFE plans on first unit completion in February 2011, followed by second unit completion in May 2011, and completion of the project in June 2011.

Bid documents are available through September 22 and may be obtained from the CFE Internet site, www.cfe.gob.mx. Bids are due September 28.
