Wind project portfolio in Peru exceeds 4.8GW with new concession

Peru’s energy and mines ministry granted Statkraft a temporary concession for a 100MW wind project, bringing the number of such concessions in the country to over 4.8GW.

The Norwegian company applied for the concession for the proposed Stone plant in November and now has 24 months to carry out feasibility studies in the Pueblo Nuevo district of Chepén province in La Libertad region.

Statkraft already operates nine hydroelectric plants in Peru for a combined 448MW and recently acquired the Lupi solar (150MW) and Emma wind (72MW) projects, the latter with 408MW of wind and solar power in a second phase.

The renewable energy developer has also implemented a solar laboratory near its 48MW Malpaso hydro plant in the Junín region, at more than 3,900m above sea level.

Earlier this month, Statkraft and BBVA Peru signed an agreement for the issuance of renewable energy certificates for the 180MW Cheves run-of-river hydro, which is Statkraft’s largest plant in Peru.


Information from the ministry shows that until the Stone concession was granted, there were 17 temporary wind concessions in the country for a total of 4,759MW.

The main ones are in the hands of Fener Perú and Enel Green Power Perú for the Windica (800MW) and Salinar (503MW) hybrid wind-solar projects.

The others are Acarí (40MW), Céfiro (300MW), Huacho Sur (168MW), Huáscar (300MW), La Quebrada (100MW), Lomitas Plus (200MW), Malabrigo (100MW), Negritos (150MW), Pampa (200MW) , Pescadores (348MW), Piletas (250MW), Quercus (450MW), Samaca 2 (150MW), Tres Quebradas (250MW) and Violeta (450MW).

A temporary concession allows the use of public property and permission to obtain temporary easement rights, and can be extended once for a maximum of one year. The concessionaire will also have preferential rights to request the definitive concession.

If the company does not carry out the studies within the allotted time frame, the ministry will collect the project deposit.
