Peruvian environmental authorities have approved a transmission project for Cusco region.
In a resolution, the energy and mines ministry's energy environmental affairs office said approval does not constitute the granting of legal permits or construction licenses that the company must still obtain.
The project is due online in August 2016 and will transport power principally from hydroelectric plants Machupicchu II (99MW) and Santa Teresa (98MW).
Machupicchu-Quencoro-Onocora-Tintaya is part of six 220kV lines due online through early 2019 in Peru: Azángaro-Juliaca-Puno, Carhuaquero-Cajamarca Norte-Caclic-Moyobamba, Friaspata-Mollepata, La Planicie-Industriales and Moyobamba-Iquitos.
Bidding also is underway for 220kV project Montalvo-Los Héroes.
