In the first two months of 2017, Electroperú moved into second place, behind Engie and displacing Enel (see table below).
The company's current capacity comes from hydroelectric plants Mantaro (798MW) – Peru's largest hydropower complex – and Restitución (280MW), and thermoelectric power station Tumbes (18.7MW).
To maintain its top tier position, Electroperú has outlined a series of initiatives to guarantee supply from its current plants along with a portfolio of mid to long-term projects, which include the following:
MIDDLE HUARI RIVER BASIN
– Construction of the 2.4Mm3 Abascocha dam, scheduled to be carried out in 2018.
UPPER PACHACAYO RIVER BASIN
– Construction of dams Norma and Antacocha to hold 5.4Mm3 expected to begin this year.
– Study due to be carried out and completed this year.
– Contract signed with Consorcio Tractebel (Leme Engenharia-Tractebel) to develop a study for the integral maintenance of Mantaro to increase its useful life. Consorcio MWH Perú-MWH Américas will supervise the study which is expected to be completed in 2018.
–Consorcio Lombardi-Norconsult is wrapping up a study to determine the feasibility of building a second water supply tunnel at Mantaro.
