International Atomic Energy Agency representative Pablo Adelfang arrived in Bolivia to help authorities advance nuclear power studies, state news agency ABI reported.
In October, President Evo Morales announced plans for an R&D center in La Paz. The government has budgeted 12mn bolivianos (US$1.74mn) to launch a project next year, said ABI.
The country's vice president Ana Helena Chacón participated in the ceremony along with Acciona Energía CEO Rafael Mateo and executives from partner Ecoenergía.
The winner will have 18 months to complete the project, which falls under an IDB-financed program to further integrate the country with the regional power market. Offers are due January 9.
