Construction of Ayanunga hydro plant begun

Enel, through its renewable energy subsidiary Enel Green Power Peru (EGPP), has started construction of its 20 MW run-of-river hydropower plant Ayanunga.

Enel will be investing around USD 50M in the construction of Ayanunga, which is part of the investment outlined in the Group’s current strategic plan. The project is supported by a 20-year energy supply contract signed with Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines.

The Enel Group was awarded in 2016 the right to sign the energy supply contracts for the Ayanunga plant following the fourth public renewable energy tender launched by the Peruvian energy regulator OSINERGMIN. With a total of 326 MW of wind, solar and hydro capacity awarded in the tender, EGPP is expected to become the main renewable player in Peru by 2018 and the only company operating plants of three different renewable technologies in the country.

The Enel Group is present in the Peruvian generation sector through EGPP, which is also building the 180 MW Rubí solar plant, and through Enel Generación Perú and Enel Generación Piura, which can count on a combined installed capacity of around 2 GW.
