CCC, Hatch to help Peru deliver drip irrigation project

May 2, 2024

The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) has 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.

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 enable Peru to cultivate an additional 63,000 hectares (ha) of land, as well as improve existing farming operations in the region of La Libertad, which represent another 48,000 ha of land. It will also supply 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.

CCC is Canada’s G2G contracting agency. For over 75 years, CCC has been helping Canadian companies like Hatch to establish successful commercial relationships with foreign governments.
