Peruvian transmission PPPs awarded

Transmission lines for electricity

Peruvian investment promotion agency ProInversión has awarded two electricity transmission PPPs to Spain-based infrastructure company Acciona Concesiones.

The projects in question are:

  • the Ica–Poroma link (220kV)

  • the ITC link Cáclic-Jaén Norte (two circuits) (220kV)

There were nine prequalified teams:

  • Acciona Concesiones 

  • ALUPAR Peru

  • Atlántica Peru – not present for the awarding ceremony 

  • Celeo Redes

  • Cobre instalaciones y servicios SEA – not present 

  • ConsorcioTrePerú – withdrew from the process on 9 November 2022

  • Conelsur – not present

  • Interconexión Eléctrica (ISA)

  • Eléctrica de Medellin Peru (Edemsa) – not present 

A detailed breakdown of Acciona’s bid for the two concessions – awarded together – is as follows:

Ica–Poroma link (220kV)

  • Total investment cost – $44.02 million

  • Annual O&M cost – $1.66 million

ITC link Cáclic-Jaén Norte (two circuits) (220kV)

  • Total investment cost – $29.12 million

  • Annual O&M cost – $2.32 million

The investment cost annuity for the two projects is $9.08 million.

Acciona’s bid was accepted because it offered the lowest annual service cost at $13.06 million.

The other present bidders’ annual service costs were:

  • ISA – $13.63 million

  • Celeo Redes – $14.20 million

  • ALUPAR – $13.46 million

Both PPPs will include power line extensions and associated substations, servicing more than 370,000 people.

Acciona will be responsible for the DFCOM for both projects, and the concession term is 30 years plus the construction phase.

The Ica–Poroma link will stretch between Ica and Poroma, in the southern part of the country, with plans to incorporate the transmission line into Peru’s national electricity grid.

For its part, the ITC link Cáclic-Jaén Norte, to be located in the north of Peru, will supply electricity to the local grid.
