Hydroelectric plant
A high-tech hydroelectric plant is being built at the Cuban town of Rio Grande, in the mountainous zone of the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba.

Financed by the Japanese Community Projects Help Fund, the plant will have a power of 7 Kw to benefit 52 dwellings, 20 more than scheduled because of the rationalization of the project and amplification of electric networks.

The project will cover other social areas like a school, video room and others, all of them in Rio Grande, municipality of Guama, the one with the biggest hydroelectric power in Cuba.

With this one, the number of hydroelectric plants in the Cuban eastern mountain zone will increase to 18.

Specialist Angel Luis Ricardo said the neighbors in that community are taking charge of the construction with the supervision of experts.

The investment includes a tank for water distribution with capacity of 27,000 liters, and a building for the hydroelectric plant.

Electric service is quite unstable in Rio Grande, and low voltage produces breakdown of equipments and other difficulties.

The project is more than 60 percent built and once finished, the zone will receive quality water and electricity.
