The Yaupi hydropower plant is the second largest power generating plant operated by Statkraft Peru. It is located in the Llaupi village in the Junin region, at 1,328 metres above sea level, and utilises water from the Paucartambo river.

The plant takes in the water turbined by the Yuncan hydropower plant, owned by company Enersur, upstream of Yaupi. The water is conveyed to the valve chamber of the Yaupi hydropower plant. In this way the five generating units in the powerhouse are supplied with water.

The Yuncan intake and the reservoirs for daily regulation are located in the Pasco region.
