Chile’s Supreme Court Grants Injunction Against Endesa Plant

Chile’s Supreme Court granted an injunction filed by fishermen against Empresa Nacional de Electricidad SA’s Bocamina II thermal plant project, the court said, according to the judiciary’s website.

Endesa, as Chile’s largest power generator is known, should carry out an environmental impact study on the possible effects of the project, the court said.

The plant is scheduled to begin operations in the second half of this year.
