El Salvador awards construction supervision for 67-MW El Chaparral

El Salvador utility Comision Ejecutiva Hidroelectrica del Rio Lempa (CEL) has awarded a contract for supervision of construction of the 67-MW El Chaparral hydroelectric project on El Salvador’s Torola River.

CEL announced the award to a consortium, Eurostudios-Ingetec. It took bids for the work in early 2008. (HydroWorld 3/13/08)

The consortium is to supervise definitive design, construction, assembly, testing, and commissioning of El Chaparral, an El Chaparral substation, and extension of a substation at the 99.4-MW Cinco de Noviembre hydroelectric project on the Rio Lempa.

Astaldi S.p.A. of Italy was named winning bidder in 2008 for US$220 million turnkey construction of El Chaparral, including a roller-compacted-concrete dam, reservoir, and powerhouse containing two Francis turbine-generators. (HydroWorld 10/2/08) El Salvador President Elias Antonio Saca and CEL President Nicolas Salume participated in a ground breaking ceremony for the project.
