The event was divided into two parts; the first part which was the official one,  started at 11 am and was attended by national and departmental authorities plus attendees who have supported the projects Peralta I and Peralta II from their inception. It is noteworthy to highlight the attendance of the Minister of Industry, Energy and Mining Chem.

The guests made a guided tour of the concrete tower plant which ended with the ribbon cutting ceremony in front of all workers and their families. Then there was an event at which ENERCON thanked the authorities for their support in the different phases of the project and it also expressed its thanks to the workers for their daily work.

The second part of the event was a party for employees and their families, especially for their children.  Divided into groups, they had the opportunity to paint on the first segment produced in the concrete tower facility and to make windmills from paper and household materials. Furthermore, the children also visited the plant in which their parents work every day.
