Peru Map

The Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines has granted rights of way essential for the construction of the 406-MW Chaglla hydropower plant.

The permissions will allow for the Chaglla's dam and hydraulic interconnection from the project to its discharge channel.

The US$1.2 billion project is being developed by Empresa de Generacion Huallaga SA, which is a subsidiary of Brazil's Odebrecht Group.

The developer received $150 million in funding from the Inter-American Development Bank in December 2011 after awarding Alstom a $108 million contract to supply the plant's complete electro-mechanical package earlier that year.

Chaglla is expected to be completed by January 2016.
