The first biomass energy plant built in Cuba with foreign investment is set to enter into commission soon.
Once finished, the energy plant will provide clean energy by using the by-products of the local Ciro Redondo sugar mill.
This 60MW modern plant is situated 430 km east of Havana. Joint venture BioPower S.A. built the plant, using Chinese technology. The electricity generated will be less costly and more efficient, whilst reducing carbon emissions and reliance on oil and fuel.
This project shows Cuba’s plans to diversify its electricity sources are successfully materialising.
