The expanded transformer unit is expected to be online 'within weeks'. The second phase expansion also includes upgrades to Clarines 13.8kV and 34.5kV lines with connect it to six nearby municipalities.

Corpoelec Plans to Consolidate its Units into Single State-Run Entity in 2014
Jan 8 14
Corpoelec plans to consolidate its units into a single state-run entity in 2014. The move aims to improve efficiency and decision making along Venezuela's national SEN grid. Venezuela suffered frequent blackouts last year, including an outage last month which left roughly half the country without electricity. Ruling PSUV party officials have repeatedly blamed the blackouts on anti-socialist saboteurs. In 2014, the company will focus on accelerating the conversion of thermo plants from diesel to natural gas. Aside from being more economical and environmentally friendly, gas-fired plants need less maintenance. Corpoelec also plans to form an investigative team tasked with strengthening the SEN and has previously stated it will target the SEN's 765kV transmission system as the first step in improving the network. Corpoelec's initial efforts this year include maintenance on a 55MW unit of the Jose Antonio Páez hydro plant and electrical network refurbishments in Barinas state.
