Plant is operating in Chilbre at 50% capacity

Energy/Infrastructure

The Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers National (Idaan) reported that the water treatment plant of Chilibre is still working 50% by an electrical fault in a pumping station.

For this reason, from the night of Monday, April 9, potable water will be presented at the low points, while in the media low pressure will be experienced and in the high places for a few hours they will not have the service.

The fault has caused that 5 of the 10 pumps are not working properly, so the maintenance staff of the Idaan, together with specialized technicians, perform the relevant work to normalize the system.

It is important to emphasize that the decrease in pressure in the pumping equipment has caused the water sent to the Tinajitas storage tanks to be returned to the plant.

The Idaan recommends making rational use of drinking water in the low points that have the supply.

The contingency unit will provide water tanks to hospitals and clinics that require it to continue their daily functions.

Torrijos brings up topic of “electricity” compliance as major election point.

I wonder if the operation of a “business” that has been run for 20 years without the necessary concession to sell utility services will be looked at?  Or does Bocas del Toro not exist in this regard?  https://www.laestrella.com.pa/panama/politica/torrijos-califica-como-un-desastre-el-servicio-de-energia-electrica-KF6557084   The candidate raised the urgent need to supply water to Panamanians …
