PRINOTH receives royal honour

PRINOTH receives royal honour

Prince Charles was the guest of honour at the inauguration of a solar power plant in Havana. Also present: the PRINOTH BMH 480-H600.

During an official trip to the Great Antilles with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles visited the construction site of a solar park in the Havana area.

For some years now, Cuba has been investing more and more in the development of renewable energies in order to reduce its dependence on oil. The aim is to obtain 24% of electricity from alternative energy sources within 2030. The solar park in the so-called Mariel Special Development Zone is part of this nationwide project and will be implemented by HE Ltd & Biopower, which is also implementing two other major projects of this type.

PRINOTH-Power makes an impression

The Prince of Wales, representing the British Royal Family, visited the Mariel site on 26 March. In addition to the solar systems, the powerful vehicles that free the construction site from heavy weeds and at the same time produce and supply the biomass required for the power plant aroused particular interest: the PRINOTH BMH 480-H600.

Prince Charles and Cuban Vice President Ramiro Valdés were very impressed by the powerful PRINOTH machines. Before the official ceremony and the dignitaries' speeches began, they both inspected the PRINOTH vehicles and had the drivers and our local partners explain the technology in detail.

Prince Charles and Ramiro Valdés, the company's director and PRINOTH partner HE Ltd, Andrew MacDonald, were present at the opening of the construction site. The British Ambassador in Havana, Anthony Stokes, Rodrigo Malmierca, Minister for Foreign Trade and Investment in Cuba, and Miguel Diaz-Canel, President of the Council of State and Ministers were also present.
