Power engineers of IDGC of Centre continue to restore power supply to consumers of the Tver region, disrupted as a result of abundant rainfall and snowfall on power transmission lines. By 4 pm, the number of de-energized consumers was reduced by almost half.
According to the Grid Control Centre of the Tver branch of IDGC of Centre, technological malfunctions on 14 lines with a voltage of 6-20 kV are currently being recorded, while the number of settlements and residents without electricity is constantly decreasing. The positive changes are due to the fact that the power engineers locate faulty sections of overhead lines (Conductors) and isolate them, feeding consumers with temporary circuits or, conversely, restoring the Conductor operation, transfer it to the normal mode. Such scheduled switchings can cause short-term controlled interruptions in the supply of electricity.
IDGC of Centre’s personnel in the mode of round-the-clock duty are performing emergency repairs in the Tver region, in which 81 crews are involved. Among them there are additional crews from the neighbouring branches of the electric grid company - Yarenergo, Kostromaenergo, Smolenskenergo, Bryanskenergo, Kurskenergo. The seconded crews were involved to help Tverenergo in Distribution Zones with the greatest number of outages: Penovsky, Bologovsky, Zapadnodvinsky, Toropetsky, Ostashkovsky, Andreapolsky and Firovsky.
The personnel of the Tver branch of IDGC of Centre are in constant interaction with local divisions of the EMERCOM of Russia for the Tver region, representatives of contract organizations, and crisis management centres functioning in the territories of municipalities.
At present, the weather in the region is unstable at 0, -1 and ice on wires of power lines. In this connection, the power engineers warn about possible local disruptions in power supply through the distribution grid. The Grid Control Centre of the branch constantly monitors the situation in the region.
