Preparing for the boom in Pedernales
The Empresa Generadora de Electricidad Haina (EgeHaina) has announced the installation of a new Hyundai power generation plant in the southwestern province of Pedernales. As reported by the company, US$3 million was invested to expand the capacity of the Pedernales generation plant from 3.8 megawatts to 5.1 megawatts. Current peak demand is only at 2.8 megawatts. The Hyundai power plant operates using an efficiently packaged power generating system with a 1,700-kilowatt capacity.
The announcement comes at a time when other plans for new investments in Pedernales are on the agenda. In his 27 February 2015 state of the nation speech, President Danilo Medina announced that the Bahia de las Aguilas beach area would be developed.
