CNEE to present transmission plan in Houston

Guatemala's power regulator CNEE will participate in this month's 7th Latin American Leadership Forum in Houston as part of promotion efforts to build transmission lines under the 2008-18 sector expansion plan, a CNEE official told BNamericas.

Last month, the watchdog issued a call for bids to build a new transmission network which includes 1,394km in new lines and substations that will require US$422mn.

Another US$82.1mn will go to works for the interconnection with Mexico and the Siepac grid. Offers are due on September 29.

Local and international firms have expressed interest in the process, with successful roadshows already held in Spain and Colombia, said the official, adding another roadshow could be held next month in Miami.

The 1,394km are divided into the following systems: Metropacífico (144km, central and south regions), Hidráulico (464km, northwest), Atlántico (585km, northeast), Oriental (55km, southeast) and Occidental (146km, southwest).
