  • Nicaragua awards equipment contract for 220-kW Salto Negro

    Nicaragua's Ministerio de Energia y Minas (MEM) has awarded a contract for turnkey equipment supply for the 220-kW Salto Negro hydroelectric project at Villa Sandino in Chontales Department.

    MEM awarded the contract valued at US$473,360 to winning bidder Empresa Hidro Energia S.A. of Guatemala.

    With funding from Swiss, German, Dutch, United Nations, and World Bank sources, the government is developing the small hydro project, under a program of small-scale hydropower development in off-grid areas. (HNN 6/25/07)

    The Salto Negro contract calls for turnkey installation, minus civil works, of a 220-kW cross-flow horizontal turbine, synchronous generator, transformer, control cabinets, lightning protection, cables, batteries, and accessories, plus instructional manuals, operator training, and spare parts.
