Company Parque Eólico Tres Hermanas has submitted an EIS to Peru’s energy and mines ministry for a 90MW wind farm, according to ministry information.

The wind power developer last year was awarded a contract in the country’s second renewable energy auction with a bid of US$0.069/kWh. The wind farm is planned for Marcona district in Nazca province, Ica region and startup is penciled in for end-2014.
