Peru: Maple Energy continues with ethanol project
Source : biofuels-news.com
In northern Peru work is ongoing with Maple Energy's ethanol project and the ethanol company expects commercial operations to begin in the second half of 2011. Costing an estimated $254 million (€180.6 million), the greenfield project, which includes main water delivery and drip irrigation systems, comprises an ethanol production plant and a 7'800-hectare sugarcane plantation in the first phase. The plant will produce up to 35 million gallons a year of ethanol from 5'000 tonnes a day of sugarcane provided by the plantation. A power plant will also be built on the site, generating 37MW that will supply all of the project's power requirements. The excess power, expected to be around 17MW, will be sold to the Peruvian national power grid. A 37km 60kV electric transmission line will connect the facilities of the ethanol project to the power grid.
