The Malpaso hydropower plant makes use of part of the water from the Mantaro river for power generation. Due to the proximity of the powerhouse to the Malpaso reservoir where the water taken in from the Mantaro river is stored, the plant has the capacity to quickly increase or decrease the generation capacity according to demand.

The Malpaso hydropower plant is remotely operated from the dispatch centre of Statkraft Peru in Lima.

The Malpaso hydropower plant has been operational since 1937 and the annual energy production is about 240 GWh, enough to power approximately 170,000 homes.

Statkraft Peru implements corporate responsibility programs intended to build capacities and educational competences in the schools in the area influenced by the Malpaso hydropower plant. Also, we are involved in joint efforts with the Government to launch educational campaigns on water-related issues, quality education and health among other things. Additionally, environmental controls are in place as part of the environmental monitoring program and solid waste integral management.
