Electrical service restored after fire at Calabozo substation

After several hours, more than 30 thousand users in various communities have electricity again

This Monday morning, the electrical service was restored in various communities of Calabozo, Guárico state, after last Saturday, as a result of a fire that occurred at the Carutal Substation, a transformer burned.

Teams from the National Electric Corporation (Corpoelec) carried out the replacement of the affected transformer, as well as different corrective works, managing to benefit more than 30 thousand users in the communities: Nicolás Hurtado Barrios, Los Pinos, Francisco de Miranda, Simón Rodríguez, Primero de Mayo and Mireyal.

The restitution work was supervised by the Minister for Electric Energy and sector vice president of Public Works and Services, Jorge Márquez; the president of Corpoelec, José Luis Betancourt; the governor of the state, José Vásquez and the mayor of the entity, Donald Donaire.

Minister Márquez highlighted that the installed equipment was transferred from the Arenosa Substation, located in the state of Carabobo.

He highlighted the arduous task of the team deployed at the site, “to bring the best service to these affected communities,” he said.

They denounce acts of vandalism

The head of the Electric Energy portfolio denounced the actions of sabotage and vandalism against the Venezuelan electrical infrastructure.

“I want to tell that group of terrorists who intend to destabilize the country, that they have not and will not be able to defeat us. “We are here to guarantee the peace and stability of the nation,” said Márquez. 

For his part, the regional president, José Vásquez, also rejected all attacks from sectors "that seek to generate chaos for our people."
