Electricity generation is precarious due to breakdowns at the Aguirre plant and low production at the AES cogeneration plant

One day after Generate PR managed to return unit #1 of the central Aguirrethe plant went out again on Tuesday afternoon, increasing the risk of load relays at night, when LUMA Energy projects demand in excess of available generation.

The spokesperson for Genera PR, Ivan Baezpointed out that Unit #1 went out of service as it was still in the “testing” stage, as it was reincorporated into the system after weeks of repair.. The testing phase, he added, could extend for several days.

The departure of Aguirre #1 is added to that of unit #2 of the same plant, which on Monday night suffered a breakdown that left approximately 95,000 customers without electricity service. Unit #2 will be out of service, at least, until the weekend, Baez acknowledged.

In addition, The setbacks in Aguirre are combined with the limitations in the cogeneration plant AESin Guayama, which has been producing energy at less than half its capacityreducing reserve levels in the system and, as a consequence, leaving the door open to selective blackouts over the next few days.
