Haiti - Technology : Coteaux hybrid power plant, soon rehabilitated
Let's recall that following the post-Matthew inventory, the technicians began the excavation work for the rehabilitation of this plant, which provided energy before the damage caused by the passage of Hurricane Matthew 15 hours a day, to 1,008 households of a cooperative of 1,273 members in the communes of Coteaux, de Roche-a-Bateau and of Port-salut.
"Currently, we are obliged to provide only 4 hours of energy per day," deplores Rhito Thilus, Director of the plant, who expects that the work will be completed in 2 months and will allow to consider a wider territorial coverage of the coastal zone.
