Chile / Hydropower / Project

The Osorno run-of-river power plant is in a redesign phase and will use the waters of the Pilmaiquén River.

Statkraft is redesigning the Osorno project since the plant's reservoir as originally designed would affect a site of cultural significance of the Ngen Mapu Kintuante ceremonial site with high significance to the Mapuche-Huilliche communities. The Osorno project acquired an Environmental Qualification Resolution in 2009.
