The ENDESA Power Expansion Project in Chile will finance most of the foreign exchange costs of (a) installing an additional 49,000 kw of generating capacity in the Abanico hydroelectric plant (present capacity 86,000 kw); (b) constructing a hydroelectric plant with a generating capacity of 48,900 kw on the Huanehue River near Lake Pullinque; (c) constructing the La Isla hydroelectric power plant with a generating capacity of 68,000 kw, and (d) erecting transmission lines and constructing new or enlarging existing substations. This project will add about 406,000 kw in generating capacity and will increase production by about 2.1 billion kw a year, it will more than double Endesa's generating capacity, and will enable Chile to continue to develop and expand its industrial and agricultural production.
