Mexico Opens Power-Line Sector to Private Firms

MEXICO CITY – For the first time, Mexico will seek bids from private companies to construct and operate a high-voltage line linking the Baja California electric grid with the rest of the country, Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquin Coldwell said Thursday.

The line, expected to cost $1 billion, will run from Mexicali in Baja California Norte to Hermosillo, capital of Sonora state.

“The new contracting model allows us to connect Mexican territory without committing public resources, as well as to use new and advanced technologies that will give the system greater security, Coldwell said during a presentation in Mexico City.

The line unifying the national grid is supposed to become operational in 2021.

Presentation of bids from interested companies is scheduled for next month and the contract is to be awarded in September 2018.

Firms can submit bids individually or as part of consortiums.
