Egasa submits EIS for US$665mn hydro project

Peruvian generator Egasa has submitted an EIS to the energy and mines ministry for the US$665mn Molloco hydro electric project in Arequipa region.

In 2007, the ministry signed a supreme resolution granting Egasa a temporary concession for the project, which would use resources from the Molloco river basin.

Project components include dams Machucocha (50Mm3), Molloco (150Mm3) and Japo (90Mm3), and plants Llatica (144MW) and Soro (158MW).

Egasa also holds a temporary concession for the Lluta and Lluclla hydroelectric projects in Arequipa, which total 560MW.

The generator already operates the Charcani I, II, III, IV, V and VI hydro plants, and thermo plants Chilina and Mollendo.
