May 4, 2010

Lima, 4 May 2010. Proinversión, the Peruvian private investment promotion agency, in the presence of the Minister of Energy and Mining, Pedro Sánchez, has awarded Abengoa Peru (part of Abeinsa, the parent company of Abengoa’s industrial engineering and construction business group) the contract to construct, operate and maintain for a period of 30 years, the electricity transmission line that will connect the Chilca substation in the Lima region with the substations in Marcona, Ocaña and Montalvo in the Moquegua region.

The project, which involves an estimated investment of €280 million and is due to take 36 months to complete, involves the construction of three new substations, the expansion of an existing substation, as well as the construction of a new 500 kilowatt transmission line that will be 872 kilometres long.

The electricity transmission line will serve the departments of Lima, Ica, Arequipa and Moquegua and by being connected to another network in the northern department of La Libertad, will allow almost the entire Peruvian coastline covering 1,600 kilometres to be connected, which will help to promote development in these parts of the country.

Alfonso González, Chairman of Abeinsa, said “this new contract strengthens Abengoa’s leadership, which has been present in Peru for more than 30 years, in the Latin American region, where it owns more than 10,000 kilometres of transmission line that it maintains and operates between Brazil, Chile and Peru”.

He went on to say that “Abengoa also has the trust of numerous financial institutions that are financing this project”.
