Ron Canter sent in this update on the emabattled Xalala dam on the Chixoy River in Guatemala. An excerpt:
Cancelled twice before, the proposed 82-meter-high Xalalá Dam proposed for Northern
Guatemala found no bidders on its third try in early November. A number of prominent
companies – including US firms AES International and Duke Energy, the Brazilian firm Odebrecht,
and others – purchased the project bidding rules, but none offered a proposal for the estimated $400 million project.
