Spain's Sacyr, through subsidiary Sacyr Construcción, has landed two Peru hydroelectric dam construction contracts.

The work was awarded by Andes Generating as part of its EPC concessions for the 8.6MW El Carmen and the 19.8MW 8 de Agosto dams, Sacyr said.

Sacyr Construcción is responsible for all construction at El Carmen. At 8 de Agosto the firm's responsibilities include 3,243m of tubing for the conduction system, an 898m tunnel section and a diversion dam with a mobile barrage and floodgate.

The combined contracts, Sacyr's first in Peru, are worth US$77.9mn.

According to Peru's energy and mines ministry, 8 de Agosto is due online by end-2014. Information for when Carmen is expected to start operations was not available.
