Cuba’s electric system takes important step towards recovery

Cuba’s electric system takes important step towards recovery

Havana, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Electro-energetic System (SEN) managed to synchronize the micro-islands of the western and central regions, so that it operates today as an integrated system, reported the Electrical Union (UNE).

UNE’s technical director, Lazaro Guerra, explained to local television that this is an important step towards the recovery of that service, which was badly affected by the passage of Hurricane Ian, after which the country was left with zero generation due to damage to transmission lines.

According to UNE’s Twitter profile, brigades from all over the country supported the recovery work in the western provinces, the most affected by the storm, particularly Pinar del Rio, where one hundred percent of the customers were left without service.

This Friday they were working uninterruptedly in that province and also in Havana, Artemisa and Mayabeque to certify the circuits and restore power.

However, Guerra indicated that the generation capacity deficit will persist throughout the day in the isolated system of the central-eastern region, since several generation plants were still out of service.

At 07:00 local time, 862 megawatts (MW) were affected by this cause, of which 557 MW in the provinces from Pinar del Río to Mayabeque, associated to the damages caused by hurricane Ian.

The incorporation of Mariel unit 8 with 75 MW, the completion of the Puerto Escondido unit with 10 MW, the completion of unit 4 of the Cienfuegos CTE unit with 100 MW and the use of 68 MW in diesel engines are expected for this day.
