The Sancor plant, located on national route N 5, is not active due to a power cut due to non-payment. Terminating the service, registered about 10 days ago, makes the installation inoperative.
LA RAZON confirmed the service cut due to a debt of 4 million pesos. EDEN will discontinue the service in time and format, but when the payment is not completed, the service is interrupted.
Representatives of Adecoagro, the company's owner on the N5 road, will turn to the offices located in the corner of Moreno and Belgrano to advise on the debt and how to settle it.
Unfortunately, interruption of electrical energy not only does not cause any activity, but stored products will also lose the cooling circuit.
You will also have an interrupted gas service.
