The extension of the transmission electricity network in Guatemala by 23% with the addition of 850 km of new 230 kilovolts lines, is being managed by the Colombian company Grupo Energia de Bogota, which won a tender issued in 2009.
Submission of proposals for the design and construction of the third power transmission line in Panama has been postponed until August 9.
The lack of an electrical transmission line from hydropower plants in Chiriquí stands out against the backdrop of energy rationing being suffered in Panama.
An announcement has been made that the conditions for the tender for 574 kilometers of power lines will be released on July 31.
"Of the 4,115 GWh imported from Guatemala to Panama, more than 80% could have been obtained from the accumulated water on Lake Arenal in Costa Rica".
