Peru to build $800 million hydroelectric project
The Utcubamba and Magunchal rivers would supply Tingo, which would take six years to complete
Energoret Ingenieros Consultores filed the EIS for the planned Tingo I (210 MW), II (148 MW) and III (48 MW) complex with the energy and mines ministry a little over a year ago, according to Business News Americas.
In a resolution, the ministry's energy environmental affairs office said approval does not constitute the granting of authorizations, permits or other requirements the company must secure.
The Utcubamba and Magunchal rivers would supply Tingo, which would take six years to complete.
