Planean construcción de 20 centrales hidroeléctricas en Perú

17 de mayo 2011 - El presidente del Perú, Alan García, ha resaltado la construcción de 20 nuevas centrales hidroeléctricas en la cuenca del río Marañón, en la amazonía norte de ese país, como un proyecto de interés nacional debido a la envergadura del proyecto.
Los proyectos, que serán construidos gradualmente y generarán hasta 12.400 MW o 2,5 veces más la energía actualmente producida en el Perú, ayudarán también a la exportación de electricidad a otras naciones vecinas, dijo el mandatario.
La construcción de las hidroeléctricas tendrá una inversión de hasta US$6.600 millones y se ejecutarían en un plazo de entre 15 y 20 años, dijo el presidente.
