Hydroelectric Plant Connected to National Grid

The small hydroelectric plant located in the Zaza dam, in this central Cuban province, was connected to the national power grid after putting into operation its second generator unit.

Engineer Juan Emilio Garcia, chief of the hydroelectric plant, explained that the installed capacity is of 2.7 megawatts per hour, allowing it to generate up to 50 megawatts every day.

At the end of last year, the first hydrogenerating group was put into operation, producing 1,750 megawatts and saving the country 337 tons of oil.

This project is valued in 16 million dollars and is part of the energy revolution program. The investment is in charge of specialists from the People´s Republic of China and the Caribbean nation.

It was informed that the collaboration program includes the creation in the future of 20 small plants which will contribute 100 megawatts to the national power grid.

The director of the Sancti Spiritus plant stressed that with these projects, Cuba advances in the search for renewable, clean energy to preserve the environment.

The country has 180 mini-hydroelectric plants located in dams, minidams, rivers andf canals, which generate about 60 megawatts.
