Enel, through its Peruvian renewable energy subsidiary Enel Green Power Peru (EGPP), has started operations at the 180 MWdc Rubi solar PV plant, which is Peru’s largest solar plant and Enel’s first solar facility in the country. To celebrate this milestone, an inauguration ceremony was held on site which saw the participation of Peru’s Minister of Energy and Mines Angela Grossheim Barrientos, as well as Antonio Cammisecra, Head of Enel’s Global Renewable Energies Division Enel Green Power, Luca D´Agnese, Enel’s Head of South America, and Carlos Temboury, Enel’s Country Manager for Peru.

Enel invested around 170 million US dollars in the construction of Rubi, as part of the investments outlined in the company’s current strategic plan. The project, which is located in the city of Moquegua in Peru’s Mariscal Nieto province, is financed in part through Enel Group’s own resources and in part by the European Investment Bank. The facility is supported by a 20-year PPA signed with Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines. Once fully operational, Rubi will be able to generate around 440 GWh per year, which will be delivered to Peru’s National Interconnected Electricity System (SEIN) through the Montalvo substation.

Enel was awarded the PPA supporting the project in 2016 following the public renewable energy tender launched by the energy regulator OSINERGMIN. Upon completion of the other two projects awarded in the tender alongside Rubi, which are the 132 MW Wayra I wind farm and the 20 MW Ayanunga hydro facility, EGPP will become Peru’s main renewable energy player, as well as the only company in the country operating plants with three different renewables technologies.

Rolls-Royce recently provided three MTU Onsite Energy 20V 4000 generator sets to be installed at the Port of Callao, the chief seaport of Peru that gives commercial and marine access to the city and surrounding areas. The Port of Callao is the largest port on South America’s West Coast and is owned by APM Terminals. The port, which serves as the gateway to Peru, handles containerized and general cargo such as metals, grains, fertilizers, chemicals, coal, vegetable and fish oils and machinery.

APM Terminals is currently undergoing an extensive modernization to increase the port’s capacity, ability to handle large vessels, and capability to support the growing agriculture sector, which in turn, will help improve Peru’s global competitiveness. JJC General Contractors South America, a local construction company, is handling the port’s modernization project and also managed the generator set installation.

The highly-engineered Series 4000 generator set offers outstanding fuel economy and best-in-class reliability and availability. They deliver a power output of 3,250 kWe through the 20-cylinder configuration of the engine. If power to the seaport is lost, an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) will transfer the electrical load to MTU Onsite Energy’s backup power solution within seconds. Backup power is essential to keep power running to equipment that is critical to the port’s operation, such as gantry cranes, refrigeration systems and substations.

Detroit Diesel MTU Peru, an authorized distributor of MTU Onsite Energy products commissioned the project, developed the engineering, delivered and installed the system and performed final performance tests with the systems.

DF has signed a contract with the Peruvian company Enersur, a subsidiary of GDF Suez, for the turnkey execution of a natural gas power station to the south of Lima. The installed power of the station will amount to 110 MW. The execution period is 2 years and the contract price is over 111 million dollars, equivalent to 87 million Euros.

The purpose of the project is to extend the power of the complex that Enersur owns in Chilca (in the province of Cañete), 65 kilometres south of the capital of Peru, and which currently consists of the Chilca Uno power station. The Spanish company took an active part in the construction thereof eight years ago. There will be a new combined cycle station, christened as Chilca Plus, which will have a General Electric gas turbine, a steam turbine, a recovery boiler and an air-condenser.

The scope of the work to be undertaken by DF includes engineering, supply, civil work, electromechanical assembly and commissioning. The simple cycle (just the gas turbine) will come into service in the first half of 2016 and the combined cycle (incorporating the steam turbine) in the second half of the same year.

By signing this contract, DF has reinforced its business in the area of Energy this is the 53rd project undertaken in diverse countries in Europe, Latin America and Africa, with an installed power of almost 21,400 MW. In addition to the new power station to be built in Peru, the company is currently building others in Venezuela, Argentina, the United Kingdom and Algeria, over 4,000 MW in total. DF also increases its presence in Peru, where the company is executing various projects in Oil & Gas; more specifically, crude oil storage facilities for Petroperú.
