Mott MacDonald appointed on the Chaglla hydroelectric power project, Perú

Friday, Dec 06, 2013

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by The Bank of New York Mellon as independent engineer to monitor construction of the USD1.2 billion Chaglla hydroelectric power generation project in Perú. The 406MW plant is being constructed on the Huallaga River in the Chaglla and Chinchao districts in Huánuco. The project is being developed by Empresa de Generación Huallaga S.A (an Odebrecht Energia S.A. subsidiary).

The scheme includes construction of a 400MW main power plant and a 6MW auxiliary plant, a 127km, 220kv transmission line, 34km of permanent access roads. A 202m concrete faced rockfill dam forming a 17.3km long 466 hectare reservoir, a surface powerhouse and diversion, spillway and headrace tunnels will also be included.

Mott MacDonald is supporting the lenders in the construction and operations monitoring phases of the project, which includes visits, reporting on progress and certification of disbursement. The consultancy previously reviewed technical, contractual and financial aspects of the scheme, which led to a successful financial close.

Clare Rhodes-James, Mott MacDonald's project director, said: "This nationally significant project will impact Perú's economic development considerably by creating thousands of jobs and increasing its electric generation capacity to meet the needs of the country's rapidly growing economy. Once completed, this project will be Perú's third largest hydropower facility, providing approximately 13% of the country's installed hydropower."
