Ecuador tender

Ecuador`s Solidarity Fund is to launch a $73m tender for the construction of five transmission projects as part of a three-year plan to improve the country`s transmission system. The Spanish government is to provide $63m of the capital for the projects and in return the tender will be open only to Spanish companies.

The projects include a 230 kV Milagro-Machala line with substations to reinforce the system in the south of the country and prepare for interconnection with Peru.
