A specialized team of divers is working in the recovery of damages caused by Hurricane Irma to the Antonio Guiteras thermoelectric power plant in the city, where they are responsible for the review and unblocking of the entrance channels of the seawater.

Rubén Campos Olmo, director of the plant, told ACN that the role of divers is decisive in the first step of circulation of the liquid, because the debris sealed the way and made impossible to start up the equipment capable of pumping 20 thousand cubic meters per hour used to cool off the system.

It is necessary to guarantee the flow, to remove stones, sand and other obstacles, this is the second of the 10 days from which we expect to be close to the start in a first stage, as part of a scheme: water enters, we filter it , pump it, it goes to the condenser and it returns by the channel, explained the manager.

Denis Díaz Delgado, a member of the divers team of the Construction Company of Maritime Works, said that the last two channels are fully sealed, the two have limited access, and the first is easier to move from one place to another but also has much more stones.

From the beginning we had an idea of ??what we were going to find, because we worked here after Hurricane Michelle; there is an obstruction in the four interior channels, where we find a large volume of stones, said Humberto Valdés Ramírez, another member of the quintet of divers.

A crane is required to remove large stones, to unclog the canals and to give us access to the smaller rocks, in order to begin the hard manual work and allow better flow of sea water, Valdés Ramírez told the press.

We have modern equipment, we ask for safety and signal cables with the objective of knowing where to go so as not to get disoriented in the water when the sediment is lifted, said Humberto.

Multidisciplinary brigades work to compensate for the damages caused by the powerful hurricane Irma in the Guiteras, Cuba's largest power plant, with a capacity of up to 330 megawatt hours.
