Updating the fleet is especially important when power engineers are preparing for the upcoming autumn-winter period. Modern transport is important for solving power engineering tasks on ensuring a reliable electricity supply. Usage of off-highway vehicles allows to deliver quickly operational and maintenance crews to power lines and other power facilities, which are usually located in a remote wooded area. Restoration work is often complicated by severe weather conditions — an abundance of loose snow, wind and high snow cover. A reliable special vehicle is a key to operational work of emergency teams", — said Head of logistics and procurement and technical Department of the branch Yury Vidineev.
Tver power engineers are planning to purchase additional 41 pieces of special vehicles — UAZ, tracked vehicles, crew vans, drilling and crane machines.
