FMO will follow IDB under its A-loan through a Participation Agreement between IDB and FMO. The transaction is a Corporate loan and the funds will expand ENGIE Energia Peru's renewable portfolio in Peru through the construction of the Punta Lomitas Wind Farm, a 296 MW greenfield wind farm and 60 kilometers of an associated transmission line, located about 300 kilometers south of Lima. It will be the Company's first wind farm and the largest of its kind in Peru. ENGIE Group is very active in wind energy globally (on and offshore as well floating) with the aim to reach 80GW in 2030.
WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT
The loan will be used for 100% green power generation project, as well as it provides an opportunity to FMO to gain presence in Peru. This financing will provide longer-term liquidity that is not available in the local market given the current COVID-19 context and political instability in Peru. Currently only 1-2% of the estimated potential of wind and solar sources is being harnessed in Peru. This transaction will help the country to continue benefitting from its renewable energy potential given its privileged resource availability by diversifying the energy matrix towards cleaner sources and reducing its carbon intensity.
