Bolivia Map

China's Sinohydro Corporation has signed a contract to carry out large-scale civil works associated with the construction of Bolivia's 124-MW San Jose hydropower project.

Offered by Empresa Electrica Corani, a subsidiary of Bolivian state-owned utility Empresa Nacional de Electricidad (ENDE), the contract includes the construction of a regulation dam, water supply tunnels, roads and other infrastructure.

ENDE announced it was accepting bids to develop San Jose on a turnkey basis earlier this month. ENDE is still seeking applications for the project's eletrical and mechanical equipment.

The US$240 million complex is to be located in Bolivia's Cochabamba Department and will include two separate powerhouses -- the 55-MW San Jose 1 and 69-MW San Jose 2.

HydroWorld.com reported that Sinohydro was awarded a contract by Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority in January for civil works on Pakistan's 122-MW Keyal Khwar project.
