Delayed tender date for Mexico’s $1.7 billion transmission line tender

Mexico’s state-owned power company CFE has extended the tender date of the transmission line from the state of Oaxaca in the southeast of Mexico to the state of Morelos in the south of Mexico.

The economic bid for this $1.7 billion transmission line will now open on July 27, 2018, instead of the previously planned June 28th.

The power line will be operated from the Tehuantepec isthmus in Mexico, where the wind farms in Mexico converge and the narrowest between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the country.

The Tehuantepec isthmus is one of the cornerstones of the economic plan of the President of Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Potential bidders include ABB Mexico, Aquino Mexico, Arendal, Hydro-Quebec, Hyundai Engineering, Construcciones Rocha, Elecnor, and local companies. Other participants include India's Kalpataru Transmission Company, Mitsubishi, Siemens, and China State Grid Corporation.

At the same time, Mexico’s Power Control Center, Cecache, will announce on September 28, 2018, that it will win the winning bid for the $1.1 billion Baja California Power Line project, instead of the original scheduled September 14.

The Baja California Power Line Project will connect Baja California to the National Grid of Mexico.

The deadline for bid registration for this project is May 18th. There are 22 companies involved, including Siemens, ABB Mexico, General Electric, China Energy Engineering, China Electric Power Equipment and Technology, and Abou.
