Power Report Cuba Following a challenging period for Cuba's economy, Havana has changed tack; gradually supplementing its few aging large power stations with a distributed power generation network.
Features Plant Upgrade French utility EDF initiated a repowering project of its Martigues conventional oil fired power plant in 2007. The project involves the conversion to two state–of–the–art combined–cycle gas turbine units, each rated at 460 MW.
Grid–Connected PV A significant development in the solar field is a grid–connected photovoltaic (PV) farm, located near Alicante, Spain. Its modular design means that the facility can easily be expanded to increase output, which is currently 2.2 GWh per year.
Operating Plant Protection Power stations can be operated safely and economically only if the central systems for controlling processes and procedures comply with protection requirements and if they are fully integrated.
