Three floating plants of the Turkish company Karpowership can be seen these days in the vicinity of the Otto Parellada power plant, known as Tallapiedra, in Havana. Of them, only two, the one that arrived last november 15 and one more, they seem to be working, connected to the thermoelectric plant through which the ship transports the electricity they produce (in their case, 110 megawatts each).
The other, a short distance from these and smaller (with a generation capacity of 15 MW), is seen stopped this Friday.
Belonging to Karadeniz Holding, the plants of this type -seven in Cuba, according to recently assured the official pressdistributed between the port of Mariel and Havana – are, the authorities pointed out, “part of the strategy to gradually increase generation capacities and move the country away from the effects of deficit loads.”
The other, a short distance from these and smaller (with a generation capacity of 15 MW), is seen stopped this Friday
Once all of them are synchronized with the National Electric System (SEN), they will only contribute a little more than 400 MW, a figure that is in principle insufficient to alleviate the energy deficit on the Island. However, one thing is certain: since the beginning of December, and from According to the daily reports of the Cuban Electric Union (UNE), the “affects” to the service have been decreasing.
From the figures of December 1, when the UNE forecast a deficit of 1,054 MW and an affectation of 1,124 MW in peak hours, it has gone on to have no deficit this Friday.
