Monday, September 15, 2014

Peruvian environmental authorities approved a 300MW thermoelectric project in south central region Ica.

Shougang Generación Eléctrica (Shougesa) is behind the El Faro complex, which would generate 200MW from a gas turbine in a first stage and ramp up to 300MW with a steam turbine.

EIS approval does not constitute the granting of authorizations, permits or other requirements the company must secure, according to a resolution from the energy ministry's energy environmental affairs office.

Shougesa filed the EIS for the plant in 2011. El Faro would inject the national SEIN grid, as does the generator's current 63MW San Nicolás thermo plant.

In August, natural gas-fired power generation in Peru represented 51.2% of maximum demand offtake.
