The construction of the small Hydroelectric Power Station (PCHE) of two megawatts in Nuevo Mundo, Moa in the eastern province of Holguin, is almost complete. All that needs to be finished is the water drainage channel after using the potential energy.


Inalvis de la Calle, deputy director of the Construction Company reported that they are the main contractor for the project located in the vicinity of the Nuevo Mundo dam, with a reservoir capacity of 141 million cubic meters.

De la Calle explained that the perimeter fence, the outside hydraulic network and green areas, should be concluded during March.

She also said that the Power Plant Maintenance Company is working on the alignment of the motor-generator system, while the Holguin Electric Company has almost completed the commissioning of the electrical substation and the out line.

The Mechanical Company of the nickel industry is carrying out the maintenance of the valve system and is ensuring the production of cable clips and flanges for the pipes.

At the same time, Guantanamo Hydropower, who will manage the installation, is in charge of assembling the hydraulic adjustment, disconnection and other devices.
