Workers at the Gibara I Aeolian Park in eastern Cuba are preparing the six recently assembled generators on Thursday to begin generating power before February ends.
Contributing 5.1 megawatts when connected to the national electromagnetic system, the wind turbines are set atop 180 foot high masts on the Gibara coast, in eastern Holguin Province.
The Spanish cutting edge equipment will automatically turn the wind into electric energy, without using a single gram of oil.
The Gibara II park, similar to Gibara I, but with a 4.5 MW generating capacity, will be built in the same region, said Hector Lugo, in charge of the aeolian project in that territory.
Cuba already has two other aeolian parks working in Cayo Coco, in central Ciego de Avila Province, and another in the Isle of Youth, but with different projects and lower capacity than Gibara I.
