Peru: 40 MW PV project inaugurated


The two 20 MW plants are located in Tacna (Tacna Solar 20TS) and Moquegua (Panamericana Solar). They have been operational since October 31, 2012, and December 31, 2012, respectively. The generated energy is being sold to the National Interconnected System (SEIN) for a period of 20 years.

Spain-based Solarpack was awarded two PPAs in 2010 to develop, construct and operate the two plants. The $196 million investment was supported by the American agency Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) for funding.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by the President of the Republic, Ollanta Humala, representatives of the Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines, and authorities of the regional governments of Tacna and Moquegua.

Solarpack is also working on a 16 MW photovoltaic plant in Mariscal Nieto province, near Ilo and Moquegua. It is scheduled to be operational by 2014.
