Current situation as of 12.30.21

  • The global physical progress was 46.0% vs. 78.5% scheduled, due to the fact that the activities initially scheduled for 2020 and 2021 were deferred by the Declaration of the State of Emergency due to COVID-19, as well as the longer deadlines for the completion of the new Detailed Engineering.
