As part of the program to promote renewable energies in rural areas, Argentina will tender the deployment and installation of approximately 6,500 off-grid PV systems. The Argentine Embassy in Berlin has informed German companies that they can take part in the tender. Interested companies can submit their bids immediately. The off-grid systems are to be built in the rural areas within the Argentine provinces of Catamarca, Chaco, Entre Ríos, La Pampa, Neuquen and Salta, supplying an estimated 26,000 people with electricity.
The deadline for the tenders is 10 August 2016. The project is being managed by the Ministry of Energy and Mining. Information about the rules and guidelines of the tendering process is available on the embassys website in Spanish.
The planned tender will be the second round of funding as part of the program to promote renewable energies in rural areas. The first round, which ended in 2012, electrified 1,800 schools, 350 public offices and 27,000, according to the Argentine embassy. The estimated total investment in the program so far is approximately US$58.2 million.
