ENGIE begins construction of Punta Lomitas Wind Farm
ENGIE Energía Perú, one of Peru's leading power generation companies, is building Punta Lomitas wind farm, which will be the largest wind farm in the country, with 57 wind turbines spread over 77 hectares and a total installation of 260 MW. The project also has two substations and a 60-kilometre power transmission line that will connect the plant to the National Interconnected Electricity System in the first half of 2023.
ENGIE Energía Perú, a subsidiary of the French group ENGIE, has been working in Peru for 24 years and has 8 power generation plants with a total of 2,496 MW in operation.
For our part, Barlovento has been operating in the country since 2009 with its subsidiary Barlovento Renovables Latinoamérica SAC based in Lima, from where it provides services in wind and solar energy projects to developers, electricity companies and financial institutions in the country and other Latin American countries.
Barlovento has participated in the development of most of the wind and solar projects operating in Peru. Among the main ones we can highlight the wind map of Peru prepared for the MINEM during 2015 and 2016.
