The agreement between Cuba and the Turkish company Karadeniz Holding put a floating power plant on the way to the port of Mariel, diplomatic sources informed Prensa Latina this Wednesday.

The ship departed from the port of Yalova, in the sea of Marmara, in western Turkey, where it was built in the Karmarine shipyards, and upon its arrival on the island the power plant will be connected to the grid to supply the National Electric System of Cuba for a period of 4 years.
