A tender process is underway in Panama for the supply of modular bridges to cross rivers in rural areas. The contract is worth around US$79 million and a bid has been submitted for the supply deal by a local consortium, Consorcio Puentes Modulares.
The deal will see 50 modular bridges being supplied and erected across Panama in Bocas del Toro, Chiriquí, Cocle, Darien, Herrera, Los Santos, Ngabe Blugle and Veragus. Financing will also be supplied by the winner of the tender. Consorcio Puentes Modulares comprises Constructora Urbana and Toronto Global Holding.
The Ministry of Public Works in Panama previously ran a tender process in 2018 for the supply of 34 modular bridges.
