• Sustainability: The works will facilitate the development of 10GW of renewable energy in the area,  benefitting more than one million people

The Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines, through the Private Investment Promotion Agency (Proinversión), has awarded an ACCIONA-led consortium three new power transmission concession projects in the Andean country. These projects will include more than 400 kilometers of transmission lines, six new substations and the modernization of six existing substations, with an estimated investment of US$337 million (€315 million).

The projects will benefit more than one million residents of the Ica and Arequipa regions in the south of the country and will facilitate the development of more than 10GW of renewable energy in the area.

The facilities involved are the new Poroma Hub and Colectora substations and the 500kV Hub Poroma-Colectora link in Ica; the new San José Hub substation and the 220kV San José-Repartición Hub link in Arequipa; and the new Marcona II, San Isidro and Pampa substations, as well as the 138kV Marcona II-San Isidro (Bella Unión)-Pampa (Chala) link. For each of the three contracts, fifty months of construction plus thirty years of operation and maintenance are scheduled. 

These contracts, along with the four projects of this kind that ACCIONA already has in its portfolio in Peru, make the company one of the main holders of power transmission concessions in the region. 



ACCIONA has extensive experience in the infrastructure market in Peru, where it has been present since 1998 and has developed major projects, especially in the water treatment sector, such as the Talara desalination plant, the La Chira wastewater treatment plant and the Arequipa wastewater treatment plant. It is also in charge of water management in Lima for the Lima Drinking Water and Sewerage Service (Sedapal) and has undertaken key construction projects, such as the Daniel Alcides Carrión hospital and the Pucallpa prison.

In early 2024, ACCIONA completed the construction of the Pachacútec wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), located in the district of Ventanilla (Lima), which is part of the third stage of the 'Drinking Water and Sewerage System Expansion and Improvement Plan for the Pachacútec Macroproject'.

In April this year, the company’s consortium with Ferrovial and Sacyr was awarded the construction and operation of the thirty-year concession of the Lima Peripheral Ring Road, a 34.8-kilometer urban toll road in the metropolitan area of the Peruvian capital.

In 2022, ACCIONA was also awarded the concession contract for the design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of a power transmission network that will benefit 1.3 million people across Reque and Nueva Carhuaquero, as well as in Nueva Tumbes and Tumbes, in the north of the country.

A year later, the company was also awarded the concession contract for the design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of two electricity transmission lines that will benefit 370,000 people across Ica and Poroma, in southern Peru, as well as in Cáclic and Jaén, in the north of the country.

In addition, ACCIONA has participated in the construction of a pumping system for the copper ore processing plant of the Antamina project, in the province of Huari, and in the construction of the new control tower of Lima's Jorge Chávez International Airport.

In February 2022, ACCIONA Energía undertook its first project in Peru with the construction of the 131.1MW San Juan de Marcona wind farm in the department of Ica.  

ACCIONA is also active in Peru through its acciona.org foundation, with the aim of bringing clean and sustainable energy, drinking water and other basic infrastructure to low-income residents living in isolated communities.
