The synchronization, in the coming days, of several units to the National Electric System, will allow an improvement in service and a reduction in blackouts.

This was stated to Cuban Television by engineer Lázaro Guerra Hernández, technical director of the Electrical Union (UNE).

The official specified that unit number 6 of the Nuevitas thermoelectric plant, which had gone out of circulation due to a breakdown, would be the first to generate again.

She pointed out that Felton’s unit number 1 should follow, with a capacity of more than 200 megawatts, and then the Energás Varadero combined cycle, with around 90 megawatts.

Subsequently, the incorporation of unit number 3 of Santa Cruz del Norte (80 to 85 megawatts) is expected, and towards the end of the week, unit number five, of Mariel (65 megawatts).

“In total, there will be 500 to 550 megawatts more power that must be incorporated,” he assured.

The UNE Technical Director described the entry of these plants as very important, and stated that “over the course of the week the trend should be towards improvement.”

However, he acknowledged that the situation on Monday and Tuesday has been very complex, given the impossibility of covering the demand and the loss of service, due to breakdown, of three units: six and eight of the Mariel cte, and five of Renté; which will be reincorporated into the system depending on the results of the hydraulic tests.
