Statkraft has been active in Peru since 2003 and is today the fifth largest electricity producer in the country.

Statkraft has been active in Peru since 2003 when Statkraft's subsidiary SN Power acquired 100 per cent of the shares in Cahua S.A., a Peruvian hydropower company. In 2007, the company further strengthened its presence in the country and became the fifth largest electricity producer through the acquisition of Electroandes S.A.

Statkraft operates eight hydropower plants and holds a number of both permanent and temporary concessions for the development of greenfield hydropower projects in the country.

Currently, the focus in Peru is to develop the 168 MW greenfield project Cheves.
