The Grantee (Promigas S.A. E.S.P) invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the “Proposal”) from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to develop the Promigas Solar Process Heating Feasibility Study.
The Grantee is seeking to deploy concentrating solar technologies at commercial and industrial facilities in Colombia to reduce the energy costs associated with process heating systems. Promigas is interested in adding solar process heating to its portfolio of energy service offerings. Examples of process heating systems are heat generation, heat transfer, heat containment, and heat recovery devices.
As one of Colombia’s largest energy utilities, Promigas has a large customer base, supplying natural gas to approximately 12 million people in Colombia. Promigas is a multi-utility corporation with natural gas transmission, natural gas distribution, power distribution, and microfinance, serving Colombia and other Latin American countries. There are nearly 5,000 industrial customers in Colombia and most require process heating for their manufacturing and processing operations.
The objective of the Solar Process Heating Project Feasibility Study is to support the deployment of concentrating solar technologies at commercial and industrial facilities in Colombia to reduce the energy costs associated with process heating systems.
The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $649,310 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (“USTDA”).Read More
