Minister Gutiérrez expressed concern about the impact that the delay in construction has had on workers and the region in general. In addition, he highlighted that ENARSA will sign addendum 12 in the coming days, related to public debt, which paves the way for the resumption of work.

This agreement occurs in the context of the mandatory conciliation dictated by the province of Santa Cruz, in response to the sending of dismissal telegrams to workers by the UTE of companies. Since the beginning of his administration, Governor Claudio Vidal has emphasized the importance of completing this project for provincial development.

The commitment reached between ENARSA, Gezhouba and the provincial authorities represents a step forward for the resumption of the works on the hydroelectric dams, an initiative of strategic relevance for the region.
