According to BNAmericas, ENACAL had earlier launched a tender for 15 MW solar power plant and selected Spain’s Consorcio Solec as the winner. However, it cancelled the tender due to the requirement related to energy storage. 

It says ENACAL has now re-tendered the 15 MW tender whose proposals are required to come in by November 2023.
