The Sancor plant located on National Route N 5 is without activity because of a power failure due to lack of payment. The cessation of the service, registered about 10 days ago, left the plant inoperative.
RAÓ confirms the interruption of the service for a debt that reached 4 million pesos. From the company EDEN, the service will be notified in time and form, but when the payment was not made, the service was interrupted.
Representatives of Adecoagro, the company's head office located on Route N 5, will be close to the offices located in the corner of Moreno and Belgrano to advise on debt and ways to settle it.
Lamentably the power outage not only caused no activity but also stored products will have lost the cold chain.
They will also cut off the gas service.
