ELNOSA has submitted a request to the Department of Industry of Xunta de Galicia —regional government of Galicia— to begin the administrative procedures for the Supra-municipal Sector Project in order to implement new facilities in the company. This request has been made following the refusal of the City Council of Pontevedra to the Special Plan for Internal Reform (PERI in Spanish).


The company is also carrying out the necessary procedures for a review of the Integrated Environmental Authorization (AAI in Spanish) in order to keep the industrial activity in the factory located in Pontevedra, as well as to ensure the current jobs and to try to increase the employment opportunities.


António Mesquita de Sousa, advisor of ELNOSA, relies on “the continuity of the industrial activity of the company after December 2017, creating value and maintaining the direct, indirect and spin-off jobs.”
