The bioelectric plant, which is near the Ciro Redondo sugar mill in Ciego de Avila, is equipped with Chinese-made technology and is part of the country's strategic program to modify the power matrix based on renewable sources.
Plant Deputy Director Adisney Peña noted that the sugar mill will supply the raw material and condensed water to the plant, which will provide steam and electricity for production.
He described the synchronization and generation of the bioelectric plant as favorable and effective.
The modern plant, which cost more than 180 million dollars, will save about 100,000 barrels of oil a year to the country and will generate 50 percent of the power consumed by Ciego de Avila province.
Cuba is committed to generating 14 percent of electricity with energy provided by bioelectric plants by 2030.
