Japanese ambassador inaugurates pumping station in Cuba

Japanese ambassador inaugurates pumping station in Cuba

Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, Jan 26 (Prensa Latina) Japanese ambassador to Cuba, Kenji Hirata, inaugurated here today a pumping station for the supply of water by using renewable energy, a collaborative project financed by the Japanese government.

The diplomat highlighted his pleasure in putting this donation into practice for the benefit of communities in the territory with difficulties to supply the precious liquid and whose objective is to raise the standard of living of the population.

He showed his delight that Japan can favor six locations in this central province and reiterated the need to take care of this equipment to achieve long-term service.

The sixth and last pumping station to come into operation in the territory is installed in the rural community of the Elcire Perez Agricultural Production Cooperative, located in the municipality of Cabaiguán, where nearly 300 people will benefit.

José Luis Núñez, director of Maintenance and Equipment of the Provincial Aqueduct and Sewerage Company, explained that over 90 thousand euros were contributed for the six stations, and some 2,400 inhabitants of Fomento, Cabaiguán, La Sierpe and Sancti Spíritus will benefit.

Together with the use of photovoltaic solar energy, they represent savings of about 30,000 kilowatts/hour of energy per year, he said, adding that one of the impacts is that the population will receive safe quality water, together with the utility from renewable sources.

Inhabitants of the visited community showed their delight at this collaboration and at the favorable change that from now on daily life will have within their families.
