The projects were eliminated due to the modification of energy and mining regulator Osinergmin's 2013-17 investment plan, according to ProInversión resolutions.

Works under the 30-year concessions included construction and expansion of substations and associated lines.

Bidding continues for transmission concessions Carapongo and Azángaro-Juliaca-Puno.

ProInversión also plans to launch calls to develop 200MW thermo Quillabamba and award 1.2GW from new hydro plants.
