Siemens partners with Cuban utility to upgrade nation’s power infrastructure

Siemens is set to work with Cuba‘s state-owned utility on modernizing the nation’s power generation and transmission and distributionà‚ infrastructure, the company said this week.

The utility, Uniàƒ³n Eléctrica (UNE), has signed a memorandum of understanding with Siemens which includes the supply of power generation technology for existing and future Cuban power plants.

Under the terms of the agreement, Siemens and UNE will agree on the development of projects and services within conventional and renewable power generation and T&D, and will work to increase technology and knowledge transfer.

The two firms have conducted a six-month evaluation of Cuba’s current power infrastructure and have developed a nation-wide energy strategy, Siemens said.

“With this important agreement we consolidate our commitment and partnership with Cuba,” said Willi Meixner, Siemens Power and Gas Division CEO. “We will assist and support Cuba and their people on the development of a sustainable and modern electricity system to ensure the country’s economic and social development.”à‚
