Astaldi faces arbitration threat on El Salvador dam
The geological problems detected in El Salvador’s El Chaparral hydroelectric project are likely to be resolved by arbitration.
The state-owned Rio Lempa Hydroelectric Executive Commission has called for international exports to apportion responsibility for expenses incurred for a possible redesign or relocation of the dam.
The contract establishes that Italy’s Astaldi is due to complete the dame by the beginning of 2014 at a cost of $220 million.
