Russia to build small hydro plants in Cuba

Russian state-owned firm RusHydro has proposed building a network of small hydropower plants in Cuba, Russian media reported this week.

The project was proposed by Aleksandr Bogatyr, Russia’s trade representative in Havana, during a meeting on trade and economic co-operation.

'The Russian company RusHydro will offer to build small power plants in Cuba. There are no big rivers in Cuba, but it's possible to produce small hydropower,' Bogatyr was quoted as saying.  

Micro-hydro plants are an established aspect of Cuba’s energy mix, with over 180 such plants around the country contributing around 0.5% of the nation’s power generation.
