Cuban government checks the progress of prioritized programs in Ciego de Ávila



Havana, November 29 - Several members of Cuba's Council of Ministers are accompanying President Miguel Diaz-Canel on his second governmental visit to the central province of Ciego de Avila, to check the progress of prioritized programs for the country's development.

The delegation visited the 'Ciro Redondo' Biomass Plant, a leading project in the country, which in connection with the homonymous sugar plant, will provide 50 percent of the electrical energy of that territory from sugarcane bagasse and marabú.

The Commander of the Revolution, Ramiro Valdés Menéndez, noted the importance of this, the first bioelectric built in Cuba, which will contribute 60 megawatt-hours to the National Electric Power System. (RHC)
