A filing submitted to securities regulator Superintendencia del Mercado de Valores shows a Peruvian and Italian consortium will construct the first phase of the country’s 150-MW Peihap hydroelectric project.

The US$140 million job — to be completed within five years by Peru’s Obrainsa and Italy’s Astaldi — includes the construction of two tunnels that will be used to transport water to the Cashapite and Gramadal hydropower stations.

The plants are part of Peru’s multipurpose Alto Piura project, which also seeks to improve the region’s agriculture through irrigation infrastructure.
