Cheves power plant is located 130 kilometers north of Peru's capitol Lima, on the Huaura river.

Ownership: 100 %
Production: 840 GWh
Power: 176.35 MW

The power station consists of two aggregates with a total installed capacity of 172 MW and exploits a gross head of 600 meters. The power plant is the first greenfield project developed and constructed by Statkraft alone in South America.

Cheves started commercial operations in late August 2015, and will have a annual generation of around 840 GWh based on water from the Andes. The electricity generated will be sold on a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with eight local distribution companies.
