Costa Rica's state power company ICE issued a consultancy call for an IDB-financed, six month contract to determine the potential of power from waves, tides and currents. The winner will conduct visits to determine potential sites and appropriate technology, and conduct a seminar, among other tasks. Offers are due by December 7 and reference terms are available here *** Ecuador's state power generation holding company Celec invited VRTON Consultoría in a direct bidding process to submit an offer to draft reference terms for a call to carry out advanced prefeasibility studies for the Chachimbiro geothermal project. Awarding of the 55-day contract is penciled in for next month. The project is planned for Imbabura province on the eastern flank of the western Andes in the north of the country, and advanced prefeasibility studies envision the drill of a 1,500m slim hole. *** And the EBY joint venture that operates the Yacyretá hydro on the Argentina-Paraguay border announced the dam supplied a record 9,756MWh on November 22 to the latter country, breaking the previous 9,634MWh mark set February 5, 2010.
