Duna & Huambos Wind Parks to be equipped with a ZIV SAS (Peru)

The Portuguese EPC, “CJR renewables” which was awarded the Project by Spanish “Grenergy”, relied on ZIV for the supply of a complete SAS at both substations 138/34,5/22,9kV

  • Location: Chota, Perú
  • Substation: Duna & Huambos 138/34,5/22,9kV
  • Client: Grenergy
  • EPC: CJR
  • Substation Automation System: ZIV relays , Telecomunication cabinets, engineering services
  • Keywords: ZIV e-net Flex Family, IEC61850, GOOSE, HV Substation KPLC, protection relay, Africa

Duna & Huambos wind parks: 

  • 5,000 net hours of wind a year.
  • 36,8 MW
  • 40 M $
  • 60% clean energy by 2025

Sierra del Perú: 5,000 net hours of wind per year

Duna and Huambos, are located in the Huambos District, in the Chota Province (Cajamarca Department), more than 2,400 meters above sea level.

Both will be built by Siemens Gamesa, being the first parks in the Sierra del Perú, “a geographically strategic place as explained by Grenergy- due to its exceptional weather conditions for the generation of this type of energy, as it enjoys around 5,000 net hours of wind a year. ”

The wind farms will have an installed capacity of 36.8 MW. They will sell the energy produced for a period of 20 years to the Ministry of Energy and Mines of Peru, at a price of between $ 37.7 and $ 36.8 per MWh for both parks.

Grenergy foresees its launch at the end of the second quarter of 2020.

Target: 60% Clean Energy by 2025
The Peruvian Administration is aiming to cover 60% of the country’s energy demand using clean energy in 2025 and to electrify areas of difficult access. ” Grenergy has been present in Peru since 2015 with a local headquarters. The Spanish firm currently has a portfolio of solar and wind projects in Latin America valued at 2,500 MW “in different stages of development”.

A project financed by the ICO

Grenergy signed a financing agreement for $ 40 million (about 35.5 million euros) with the Bank of Development of Latin America (CAF) and the Official Credit Institute (ICO) “for the construction and development of two wind farms in Peru”.

The company estimates that these facilities will produce more than 165,000 megawatt hours per year. The parks, called Duna and Huambos, are the first in the Peruvian highlands.

It represents the first renewable energy project that the Official Credit Institute (Government of Spain) have financed in Peru, although not the first in the region, where the financing of various renewable projects in Mexico and Chile have been delivered in recent years. Sinia Renovables, a company that specialises in energy projects and whose capital controls 100% of Sabadell bank, has financed a 10% stake in both parks. The Spanish company Grenergy produces energy from renewable sources and specialises in the development, construction, and operation of photovoltaic and wind projects.

The technical solution proposed by ZIV included the supply of a ZIV Integrated Protection & Control System (SIPCO).

A system based on equipment communicated in a simple ring, with bonding redundancy. All the protection equipment (ZIV and Siemens; the latter in cells) are connected using ST glass fiber optics; while the metering equipment (ION 8650 and SEL735) via Cat 5 cable. All of them communicate under IEC 61850 protocol.
