Unit 1 of the Lidio Ramón thermoelectric plant, also known as Felton, woke up today in the cooling process with a view to a 13-day preventive work that will put it in better conditions to operate at the beginning and end of the years.
This colossus of generation is out of service for maintenance along with unit 5 of Mariel, 1 of Santa Cruz, in addition to the fact that 3 of Santa Cruz, 3 Rente and 2 of Felton are due to breakages.
However, the generation capacity deficit is estimated to occur only during the night peak with an impact of 280 MW in a short period.
As background, yesterday the maximum impact was also at night with 122 MW at 6 and 10 pm.
Today the availability is 2,380 MW and the demand is 1,900 MW, with limitations in thermal generation (330 MW), while in distributed generation, 803 MW are unavailable due to breakdowns and 123 MW are in maintenance.
For the peak, the entry of 115 MW in distributed generation and 6 engines in the Melones Mobile Generation (95 MW) is estimated, so the availability will be 2590 MW and the maximum demand of 2800 MW, for a deficit of 210 MW, and 280 MW affected.
Meritorious preventive work has been carried out by workers in the electrical sector to maintain the current conditions of the thermoelectric plants that are currently headed by Guiteras, which consumes national crude oil extracted nearby, and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes de Cienfuegos.
The fuel transporters who work as quickly as possible to distribute it each time arrivals arrive at Cuban ports should also be recognized.
