Expect blackouts as major plants get maintenance

Santo Domingo.- The Punta Catalina consortium will take the two thermoelectric units out of service for at least three days to carry out the necessary maintenance work so that it can increase its generation.

The information was confirmed yesterday by the Unified Council of Electricity Distribution Companies, which apologized to users for the difficulties that this shutdown will cause.

The institution affirms that maintenance is essential to maintain supply stability in the short and medium terms.

If there are two thermoelectric units, why can’t they service one unit at while keeping the other online? When the first one is done back in service then take the other out for maintenance. Suspect there is some unspoken reason why they are doing this maintenance with two units offline. The media should be asking why?
