CCC, Hatch to help Peru deliver largest drip irrigation project in the world

OTTAWA, April 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, CCC signed a government to government (G2G) contract with the Ministry of Agricultural Development and Irrigation of Peru to help deliver the third stage of the $750 million CHAVIMOCHIC infrastructure project with Canadian expertise from Hatch. Canada was selected to offer project management services in December 2023 following a G2G procurement process.

The CHAVIMOCHIC project is a key pillar in the economic development of northern Peru and completes the Palo Redondo Dam, which will capture water from the Santa River to irrigate the Chao, Virú, Moche, and Chicama Valleys, as well as to generate hydroelectric power. Once completed, the project will be the largest drip irrigation project in the world enabling Peru to cultivate an additional 63,000ha of land, as well as improve existing farming operations in the region of La Libertad, which represent another 48,000ha of land. It will also supply reliable and sustainable potable water to 40,000 families and create more than 150,000 new local jobs. The project is expected to boost the agricultural and agribusiness sectors in northern Peru, enabling the region to triple its exports from 400 million to 1.2 billion USD per year.

Based in Mississauga, Ontario, Hatch is a global engineering, project delivery, and professional services firm. The company delivers multi-billion-dollar projects for clients across the globe in the energy, infrastructure, and metals sectors, including the Fargo-Moorhead flood control project in the United States, the El Leon flood control project in Peru, the 3 February hydroelectric facility (formerly El Chaparral) in El Salvador, and the Jansen potash project and On-Corridor Works project in Canada. Through CCC’s G2G contract, Hatch will provide project management services to Peru’s Ministry of Agricultural Development and Irrigation – the lead government body responsible for the development of the CHAVIMOCHIC project. The ministry is tasked with growing, diversifying, and fostering the country’s agribusiness.
