This technology will allow the country to measure weather conditions in different regions and evaluate the possibility of executing new projects.
The Government of Ecuador announced this Friday that will look abroad for technology state-of-the-art to strengthen a wind generation plan, which allows expanding its electricity production with renewable energies.
Therefore, the state Electricity Corporation of Ecuador (Celec) made public this Friday an invitation to international suppliers to acquire “specialized software for the evaluation of the wind resource in complex terrain”.
It is expected that, after the international competition, the contract for the acquisition specialized software, Celec said in a statement.
This technology will allow the South American country measure the weather conditions in different regions of the country and evaluate the possibility of executing projects to take advantage of the wind resource in electricity generation.
Celec initiates bids to contract new insurance to protect hydroelectric, wind and thermal power plants
At the moment, Celec has carried out field investigations in several Ecuadorian provinces with the aim of increasing the inventory of energy resources of the country, that can nurture an Electricity Generation Expansion Plan.
In the Ecuadorian Andean highlands, Celec has installed wind measurement meteorological towers in provinces such as Loja, Azuay, Cañar, Cotopaxi and Pichincha; while in the coastal zone it has identified potential sites in Esmeraldas, Manabí, Santa Elena, Guayas and El Oro.
Ministry launches tender for hydraulic, wind and biomass energy block, expects $ 300 million
The bulk of Ecuador’s electricity generation comes from its hydroelectric plantss, followed by plants that consume fuels and the so-called renewable energies such as wind and solar.
The so-called Electricity Master Plan It plans to expand the country’s generation with non-conventional renewable energy projects such as photovoltaic (solar), wind, geothermal resources and the use of biomass. (I)
