A press release from the Cuban Electricity Company explained that the Antonio Guiteras Thermoelectric Power Plant, whose only unit is the largest generator in the country, reported another breakdown when it synchronized to the National Electric System, which prevents it from starting up.

The note adds that this situation is aggravated after a unit of the Maximo Gomez Thermoelectric Power Plant in Mariel, in western Cuba, shut down.

The sector’s authorities warn that as a result of this situation, the electricity service will be affected and they call to implement saving measures to reduce them.

Around 65 percent of the energy consumed in Cuba is produced in the country’s eight thermoelectric power plants, which are supported for generators and renewable energy source stations, the latter account for five percent of the total generation.

Among the solutions developed by the Cuban Government to address this situation is the implementation of floating oil-fired power plants.
