Chile's Supreme Court on Thursday rejected an application for an environmental organization against Crow River hydroelectric project, which plans to build in the south of the country with an initial investment of $ 733 million .

In a unanimous ruling, the Third Chamber of the Supreme Court upheld an earlier judgment of the Court of Appeals of the Coyhaique region, in September last year dismissed an appeal against the Environmental Evaluation Service that area of ​​the country.

The statement argued that the application for protection of the NGO Environmental Prosecutor Corporation is not the way to challenge the administrative decision of 640 generating project in Patagonia megavativos leading and Origin Energy Xstrata and Glencore through Southern Energy.

Opponents of the project say Crow River could damage the environment and be built on a geological fault in one of the most seismic countries, while energy intensive companies are hungry for greater electricity supply to lower their costs.

Southern Energy, which plans to build two additional generating units, and Condor Blanco, in the same area is the second largest hydraulic recent government initiative after receiving the rejection HidroAysén project. (Reporting by Antonio de la Jara / Erik Lopez. Edited by)
