Background

The Quillabamba power station was originally proposed in 2014 as a 200 MW, simple cycle, gas-fired power plant.[1] The plant would be supplied with gas from Peru's proposed Southern Gas Pipeline.[3][4] Plans for the power plant have been repeatedly suspended and re-activated[5][6], but it continued to be mentioned in press reports as recently as January 2020.[7]
