ESO Signs Contract with Chilean Company for ELT Technical Facility

In March 2018 ESO signed a contract with the engineering and construction company Abengoa Chile to build the ELT Technical Facility at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in northern Chile. This new facility will host the assembly and maintenance facilities for the mirrors of ESO’s Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), as well as all the coating, washing and stripping facilities needed to coat and maintain the reflectivity of the mirrors.

This picture shows the ESO team involved with the contract, from left to right: Claudio Cabrera, Florence Perrault, Sergio Morrone (Abengoa Chile), Xavier Barcons, Arnout Tromp, Jimmy Arancibia and Fernando Comerón.
