SANTIAGO, April 19 Chilean investment fund
Americas Energy Fund I won an eight-year contract to supply
energy to electricity distributor Edelnor in Peru in an
operation worth $450 million, one of the funds' administrators
said on Monday.
The fund, administered by SCL Energia and financial group
LarrainVial, won the 180-megawatt contract via its local unit
Termochilca with Edelnor (EDE.LM), an affiliate of energy group
Termochilca, a thermal plant project that requires $250
million in total investment, is expected to start supplying
energy to Edelnor in 2014.
"The project (Termochilca) already has environmental
approval and recently signed a gas supply contract with the
Camisea consortium," LarrainVial said in a release.
