MWH Global, the premier solutions provider focused on water and natural resources for built infrastructure and the environment, announced the completion of Huanza Hydroelectric Project in the Andes Mountains of Peru, approximately 130 km east of the capital city Lima. This 92 MW project has been fully integrated into the Peruvian power grid and is now providing power to an estimated 90 thousand households.
MWH provided detailed design and construction management for the project. Work first began in 1996, when MWH was commissioned to provide initial feasibility studies. The project is located at an extremely steep and mountainous terrain and the powerhouse is located at an altitude of over 3400m. The gross head, vertical distance from your intake and turbine, ranks among the world’s highest heads at 835 meters.
“Huanza is an important energy source to the people of Peru,” said Lionel Ciampi, Peru Country Manager. “We are thrilled to see the community embrace hydropower as a clean, reliable source of energy.”
