Haiti – FLASH : The Péligre plant occupied by strangers
The EDH informs that following the test carried out on Wednesday afternoon at plant 3 in Carrefour, the Péligre plant was unable to get back on the grid. Investigations indicate that the power plant’s auxiliary generator was damaged at the exciter level.
EDH’s General Directorate is not yet in a position to say whether it is a question of sabotage or of a technical failure which prevents the company from increasing the tension on the metropolitan network of 36 Mw.
“The EDH also recalls that the attackers have occupied the Péligre hydroelectric plant since Tuesday with the complicity of security agents responsible for protecting staff and equipment.
No decision is taken by the authorities to dislodge them and arrest them for legal consequences.”
