On July 5, the Final Document of Samples and Rock Fragments Final Reception corresponding to the subsurface studies denominated “Multipurpose Exploitation in the Neuquén River Basin”, was signed. The document was signed by the President of EMHIDRO SEP, Eng. Elías Sapag, the representative of the Consultant Consortium INTERTECHNE - HISSA - HCA - GRIMAUX, Eng. Oscar Navarro, and the Inspector of Studies, Eng. Daniel Accattatis.
These samples and rock fragments have been obtained during the subsurface exploratory works -vertical boreholes and drilling - that the Consultant Consortium carried out under the Contract signed with the PESE (Program of Studies of the Energy Sector), dependent of the Argentine Secretariat of Electrical Energy, and they correspond to La Invernada and Cerro Rayoso hydroelectric projects.
More than 110 boxes with the material properly classified and inventoried are under the responsibility and care of EMHIDRO SEP, as established in the Agreement previously signed with the PESE Executing Unit on May 16, 2017, and were deposited in the facilities that EMHIDRO SEP has arranged for this purpose, in the Industrial Park of Plottier. The fragnments of the Chihuido I and Segunda Angostura projects, which the former company Agua y Energía Eléctrica de la Nación extracted in the 1970s during the studies of these projects, are also sheltered thereon.
In this way, the province of Neuquén is still working on the Multipurpose Exploitation in the Neuquén River Basin with the clear objective of generating clean and renewable energy, to allow the economic development of the central-north zone of the Province and to contribute with more energy to the National Interconnected System.
