ProInversion extends Tren Electrico prequalification again (Peru)
Peru's private investment promotion agency ProInversion has extended the prequalification deadline for the concession of line 1 of capital Lima's electric train system until October 13.


The agency now expects to announce prequalified firms on October 26, state news service Andina reported, without specifying when the concession will be awarded.


The winning firm will be responsible for building a train maintenance yard, purchasing rolling stock as well as operating and maintaining the 33.8km railway between Villa El Salvador and San Juan de Lurigancho for 30 years.


Line 1 is being built by consortium Tren Electrico Lima, comprised of Brazil's Odebrecht and Peru's Graña y Montero.


Early last month, ProInversion extended the initial prequalification deadline from September 15 to September 29, the report said.
