Guam - The overhaul of Cabras 1 is done. The 66-megawatt unit which provides one-third of our island's power needs and underwent $5 million worth of maintenance to improve the availability and reliability of the base load unit.
GPA spokesperson Art Perez told KUAM News, "With the completion of the overhaul GPA will now begin planning efforts to overhaul Cabras unit number two that will go down for a period of time."
Perez says customers should not be expecting any outages as the unit is online. He adds these overhauls lay the groundwork for other improvements to extend plant life and reliability.
