    Agreement will allow the Guavio to turn on turbines

    September 16, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      After 30 days of demonstrations, the community of Ubalá, in eastern Cundinamarca, lifted the blockades that restricted access and free mobility to the Guavio hydroelectric power plant.

      With this, Enel Colombia can resume normal operation of this complex and start preventive maintenance of the four generators that were shut down.

      "We celebrate this decision of the community, which will allow us to continue providing security and reliability to the Colombian electricity system. The entry of our personnel, contractors and materials for maintenance will allow us to carry out the planned work, which means that the country's largest hydroelectric power plant will resume normal operation as of next week, once the generation units are inspected," said Lucio Rubio Díaz, director of Enel Colombia and Central America.

      The lifting of the blockade arose after a consultation meeting convened by the Ministry of the Interior and in which the community of the Guavio region, the Ministry of Mines and Energy, the governments of Cundinamarca and Boyacá, local mayors, Enel and some companies present in the territory participated (see Radiografía).

      On a voluntary basis, Enel Colombia will participate in a framework agreement with the Government of Cundinamarca and Grupo de Energía de Bogotá (GEB), through which it will contribute $2,000 million and yellow machinery for the improvement of roads in the territory, representing another $2,000 million, said the company in a press release.
