Nuevitas Thermoelectric Plant is a Cuban power bastion


Nuevitas Thermoelectric Plant is a Cuban power bastion

Camagüey, Cuba, Jan 18 (Prensa Latina) Some maintenance work for a positive social and economic impact is being currently carried out in the 10 de Octubre Thermoelectric Plant in Nuevitas, one of Cuba´s most important industrial cities.

More than five decades of continuous work attest to the work of the professionals of one of the bastions of the National Electric Union, which has been affected by the wear and tear of its infrastructure and the hindrances to improve its services, largely due to the blockade imposed by the United States.

According to the report of the Cadena Agramonte website, this unit is currently undergoing a 60-day extended partial maintenance, which includes the replacement of the regenerative air heaters and the economizer.

The actions will allow “recovering its charge of 70 to 120 Megawatts (MW),” Eladio Avalos, general director of the industry, said, according to the Internet publication.

At present, the Nuevitas’s 10 de Octubre Thermoelectric Power Plant keeps units six and four in operation, which contribute a total generation charge of 197 MW.

President Miguel Diaz-Canel said at the most recent session of the National Assembly that despite the difficult conditions of Cuban economy, the government allocated financing for the recovery, before the end of 2021, of 608 MW of power.

For the Ministry of Energy and Mines, the potential of the Nuevitas plant is key to the claims of the National Electric Union, particularly in a territory that connects central and eastern Cuba.
