MOPC opens financial bids for Asuncion BRT consultancy (Paraguay)
Paraguay's public works and communications ministry (MOPC) has opened financial bids for a consultancy for a bus rapid transit (BRT) project in capital Asuncion.


Spanish-Argentine group Alg-AC&A presented the lowest offer of US$1.1mn, while consortium MML submitted the highest bid of US$1.28mn, MOPC reported on its website.


Consortium BRTBUS bid US$1.11mn, Spanish group Getinsa-Taryet bid US$1.12mn and US-Canadian group PWC-SDG-CSI submitted an offer of US$1.2mn plus 191mn guaranies (US$39,000).


No financial bid was announced for the Latin American subsidiary of Japan's Nippon Koei, which was one of the six groups that submitted a technical bid in September.


IDB is financing the consultancy, which includes analyzing Asuncion's existing public transportation system, carrying out feasibility studies and designing the new bus system.


The BRT system, which will eventually be concessioned, will cost an estimated US$121mn, BNamericas reported previously.
