A new explosion in Cuba’s fuel tanks deepens the electricity crisis on the island

This Monday afternoon a new explosion was recorded in the fuel depots of the city of Matanzas (western Cuba). The fact, which occurs after a third tank collapsed today in the industrial zone, and where a serious industrial fire, unprecedented since Friday, is still active, deepens the acute electricity crisis on the island.

The blackouts have become the main challenge of the Cuban dictatorship, according to experts, who highlight the burden they pose for an economy already in crisis, the impossibility of stopping them in the short term and their ability to fuel social discontent.

It is a devilish problem: tremendously expensive, without simple or quick solutions, with enormous ramifications that spill over into the entire Cuban economy and society, and elements beyond the reach of the regime.

It is clear that the energy situation has gotten out of hand.

The country’s thermoelectric plants –responsible for two thirds of the energy– are obsolete and lack spare parts, maintenance and investment. In addition, they require fuel at a time when Cuba has great difficulties in obtaining oil, due to its financial problems and the difficulties of Venezuela, its main supplier.

The regime has no cards to play: the system is in crisis, there is no long-term solution in sight and they have to try to manage this as best they can.
