Developer Ocona Hydro has filed an environmental impact assessment with Peru's Ministerio de Energia y Minas for the development of a 110 MW hydropower project.

The Oco 2010 plant would be located in Peru's southern Arequipa region and use water from the Ocona and Chichas rivers, the assessment said, with its output being sent to the National Electric Interconnected System (SEIN).

The ministry's office for energy and environmental affairs will hold a hearing on the assessment later this month.

HydroWorld.com reported that Peru granted a study concession for the project in September 2008, at which point Oco 2010's projected output capacity was 154.5 MW.
