Lima, April 24th, 2020 – The fight against COVID-19 represents a permanent challenge and requires close collaboration between entities. For this reason, Enel Distribución Perú, in addition to guaranteeing the continuity of the electrical service during this emergency, reached out to Marine Industrial Services (SIMA), a military base where Peruvian Navy troops continue their work.
SIMA required the support of Enel to repair one high-voltage cable connection supplies electrical energy to their facilities. This private connection had presented an unforeseen failure, cutting all power running through the facilities and paralyzing plant operations.
In awareness of the importance of the operations of this public entity, which has been working to maintain order in this national emergency, the High Voltage Maintenance Operational Unit from Enel applied a quick and innovative solution to repair the 60 kV network successfully.
After an exhaustive analysis, it was concluded that the repair could be achieved with a few material adaptations, since the SIMA cable has a different standard than Enel, while still offering all the technical guarantees and following strict security measures. Finally, after 25 hours of fieldwork, the electrical energy of the facilities was restored.
The team of professionals and technicians of Enel Peru and its contractors continues to work during the National State of Emergency to guarantee that the electric service reaches the homes and entities that have been fighting against COVID-19. Likewise, to help its clients stay at home, the company has enabled a web platform for disclosing information and submitting inquiries at www.enel.pe, where clients can find out the status of their receipt, benefits, digital payments, among others.
