The transformer that LUMA transported to the Santa Isabel substation at a cost of  million is damaged

The transformer that LUMA Energy installed at the Santa Isabel substation, after a journey by sea and land from Caguas at a cost of almost $4 million, will not be able to be put into service after exhibiting an “internal problem,” the energy consortium reported.

Although the installation of the equipment – ​​which would replace the transformer that failed in early June – was supposed to contribute to energy stability in the southern region, the company assured in writing that “the service of customers in the area will not be affected during the next four to six weeks while the replacement transformer is installed and undergoes safety and reliability tests.”

The Santa Isabel substation serves customers in that municipality, Aibonito and Coamo. After the failure in June, nearly 10,000 customers in the three towns suffered from intermittent power service, which required the installation of emergency generators due to the absence of power lines that offered redundancy in the supply.
