Peruvian ministry grants concession for 22-MW Nueva Granada hydropower project


The Peruvian government has granted a temporary concession to developer Hidroelectrica Nueva Granda for a hydropower plant in the Cusco region.

The group submitted a proposal for the 22-MW Nueva Granada project to Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines in April 2016. The ministry said feasibility studies must not be completed within 10 months.

Located in the Peruvian Andes, the Cusco region is already home to Egemsa’s 206-MW Machu Picchu and Luz del Sur’s 98.5-MW Santa Teresa plants.
