Caption:
Power plant at the Oficina Salitrera Chacabuco. It was built between 1922 & 1924 and stopped industrial production in 1940. Its owners were the Anglo Nitrate Company and subsequently the Anglo Lautaro Nitrate Company. It was the last salitrera (saltpetre works) to implement the Shanks nitrate extraction process, by which the raw “caliche” from the pampas was ground and dissolved in water at high temperatures resulting in concentrated nitrate salt., Antofagasta Region, Chile
