Colombian Ministerio de Hacienda y Credito Publico BuildingCambridge Selected to Build New “Green” Electric Grid for the Colombian Ministerio de Hacienda y Credito Publico

Under a competitive selection process that spanned several months, Cambridge has been selected to supply, install, and implement a new electric infrastructure for the Colombian Ministerio de Hacienda y Credito Publico (Ministry of Treasury) in Bogotá, Colombia. This new energy distribution system for the San Agustín headquarters of the Ministry of Treasury will replace an outdated and inefficient system that was unreliable and increasingly unsustainable under the current climate-sensitive standards. Cambridge’s new installation will create a grid with armed bars that improves efficiencies by 80% and saves approximately 70% of the Ministry’s previous electrical infrastructure operating costs when integrated into their new solar panel system.

Because the Treasury is a critical agency for the Colombian national government, the new grid supply is essential. It must meet the highest levels of availability and safety, with redundant capabilities and a design capable of fail-safe operations during all emergency responses. Cambridge’s approach will also complete an aggressive implementation schedule without impacting the Treasury’s daily operations.

“Cambridge is pleased to support Colombia’s commitment to critical infrastructure development and environmentally sensitive implementation practices. As a U.S. company that has been working with this U.S. Partner Nation for nearly two decades, we stand committed to Colombia’s ongoing success in good governance, thoughtful infrastructure planning, and shared U.S.-Colombian standards of operations,” said Cambridge CEO, Kim Harokopus.
