ESO Helps Antofagasta after the Earthquake

On Sunday, July 30, 1995, at 1:15 hrs, the Antofagasta region was struck by a strong earthquake, reaching 7.8 on the Richter scale. Three people died and more than 130 houses and buildings were damaged beyond repair. The port also suffered damage.

In an act of solidarity with the local community and its authorities, ESO immediately donated 25 million Pesos (about 100,000 DEM) towards the reconstruction work. On August 7 1995, a cheque was handed over to the Intendente for the Chilean II Region, Mr. Cesar Castillo (centre), by Daniel Hofstadt of ESO Chile (left).
