GPD begins $2.5M overhaul of Cabras 2
Guam - The Guam Power Authority has embarked on a $2.5 million overhaul of the Cabras 2 unit. For the next 40 days, the 66-megawatt unit, that can provide one third of the island's power needs, will undergo various repairs and maintenance to improve efficiency and operation.
Assistant general manager of operations Melinda Camacho says the overhaul will mean a better performing generator for the public and increase reliability from the baseload unit.
The project is inline with findings from the McHale and Associates report that found GPA was not operating as efficiently as it could be resulting in higher costs to deliver power to ratepayers.
