Argentina’s government appointed Luis Barletta as administrator of Empresa Distribuidora de Energia Sur SA, or Edesur.
Barletta will oversee the electricity distributor for the next 45 days, according to resolution 183/2012 issued by electricity regulator ENRE.
The company missed a 150 million-peso ($33 million) payment this week to wholesaler Cammesa and had sought funds from state- owned Banco de la Nacion Argentina, Ambito Financiero reported today.
