Peru's Ministry of Energy and Mines has received an environmental impact assessment for the development of a new 56.2 MW hydropower plant in its central highlands.
The plant, called Tulumayo 4, is being proposed by Ege Junin Tulumayo IV S.A.C.
Details in the assessment show a US$103 million hydroelectric project with two Francis turbine units and a 4.7 km tunnel to be built along the Tulumayo River in Peru's Junin region.
HydroWorld.com reported earlier this month that the ministry had granted temporary concessions for two projects in the Cusco department.
