One of German wind developer Sowitec's goals is to operate wind farms in Latin America with a total installed capacity of several 1,000MW.
To this end, the company has established units in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay, and earlier this year announced a deal with Banco Santander (NYSE: STD) to advance development of four wind farms in Mexico totaling 700MW.
The company now has secured a new wind power generation project in Peru.
The South American country's energy and mines ministry has granted Sowitec a temporary concession for the 240MW Pampa Caracoles wind farm.
The company submitted the request this March and has 24 months to carry out feasibility studies, according to a ministry resolution published in the official gazette.
Work will target Marcona district in Nazca province in south-central region Ica. The ministry's general power department will cash in the project deposit if the company fails to carry out the studies within the timeframe.
