The Ministry of Energy and Mines in Peru has awarded definitive concessions to local power firm Generadora de Energia del Peru (Gepsa) for three future hydroelectric plants, with an installed capacity of 19.95 MW each, according to ADP Renewable Energy Track.

Angel I, II and III will be built in the Ollachea district, in the southeastern Puno region.

They will use water from the Chiamayo river, the Peruvian authorities recently confirmed in a press release.

The company had requested the concessions back in May.
