Peru's environmental authorities received documents for a 500kV transmission project that will span southern regions Huancavelica, Ica, Arequipa and Moquegua.
Information from energy and mining investment regulator Osinergmin reveals that overall advancement reaches 17%. Initial works such as demarcation, geotechnical studies and soil sampling are underway.
Commercial operations startup of the country's fifth 500kV transmission line and associated substations is scheduled for November 2016. ISA signed the 30-year concession contract last year after winning the project with an offer of US$278mn.
Power demand in the area will grow an estimated 1GW in coming years due to mining operations, according to private investment promotion agency ProInversión.
