Electrical Union restores Cuba’s power system after major fault

Electrical Union restores Cuba’s power system after major fault

Havana, Sept 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's Electrical Union (UNE) workers restored the national power grid after a major fault in the east-west transmission line, the company reported on Sunday.

According to engineer Lazaro Guerra, UNE technical director, in the early hours of Sunday, all power transfer capability was already restored and also all generating units were supplying energy.

On television, he explained that, on Friday night, the line that goes from Nuevitas, Camagüey (center), to Holguin (east), failed due to a broken conductor.

This caused one of its two 220,000-volt circuits to break down and left the provinces of Holguin, Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba and Granma without service, because power plants were forced to shut down.
