Havana.- The construction of the Ciego de Avila bioelectric plant, the largest of its kind in the country, is at 63 percent of its execution.
The plant will generate 62 megawatts and a five megavolt (MVA) power transformer has already been put into operation.
According to specialists, the beginning of operations of this equipment constitutes an indispensable step for the progressive energization of the plant.
In addition, work is being done on a seven-kilometer-long 110,000-volt power line that will reach the Santana monitoring substation, in an advanced phase of civil construction.
At full capacity, the facility will consume 2,100 tons of bagasse in 24 hours during harvest time, and from 1,200 to 1,500 tons of sickle bush during the period of inactivity of the sugar mills.
