A report on Cuban TV assured that they were on the scene and we verified how much work has been done and is still being done to activate other equipment and thereby increase the gas pressure to customers in Havana happened.
“We took snapshots of these people in full swing and appreciated the damage caused by the incident,” he added.
At 12:10 a.m. on Sunday, May 21, as reported by Cupet himself, a switch in the compressor system of the Puerto Escondido plant supplying gas to Havana failed. Due to this only 40% was received in the gas production plants built, therefore, the service to customers in some municipalities was partially or completely affected.
Especially in houses with low pressure in the arrival of gas, in the municipalities of Plaza, 10 de Octubre, Cerro, Habana Vieja and Centro Habana; In the case of Playa and Marianao municipalities, the impact was total. It is believed that this service is being normalized since last night.
