News » Sports


Mexico's water commission Conagua seeks a contractor to supervise construction of the Centenario irrigation channel in Nayarit state.

The winning bidder will be required to supervise construction of the 60m3/s canal in the towns of Santiago Ixcuintla and Ruiz, according to documents published on the government's procurement portal CompraNet.

The 7bn-peso (US$531mn) irrigation canal will increase cultivated land in Nayarit by more than 43,000ha, harnessing up to 15Bm3 of river water runoff each year.

The canal is one of the key irrigation projects pledged by the government for construction over the next four years, with other projects to include building the 4 de Ábril canal in Baja California state and the Santa María dam in Sinaloa state.

Works are expected to start on November 10 and wrap on December 15, 2015.

A site visit will be held on October 7 and a pre-bid meeting will be held on October 9.

Interested parties should submit their bids by October 20 and the tender will be awarded on October 27.
