Specialists of the branch “Rosseti Centre Voronezhenergo” provided reliable power supply to the new Kayaking and Canoeing Centre, as well as the accompanying sports cluster, which are being built on the Chernavskaya dam of the reservoir in the city of Voronezh.
According to the grid connection agreement, the cluster’s sports facilities will be provided with electricity from 110 kV substation No. 2 located in the district of Admiralteyskaya Square. To implement this project, the power engineers reconstructed this power centre with installation of two new 6 kV line bays with vacuum switches, as well as construction of two outgoing cable lines with a length of more than 2.7 km each.
At the Chernavskaya dam itself, a two-transformer substation of 2x400 kVA was installed, another substation is being mounted with two transformers with a capacity of 1,250 kVA each. Cable lines of the 0.4 kV distribution grid were also laid. All work on the construction of energy facilities necessary to ensure high-quality and reliable power supply to the sports centre is carried out exactly on time.
“Voronezhenergo contributes to the implementation of many large socially significant projects in the region, including projects in the field of sports and physical education. Thus, we contribute to the development of the region, creating opportunities for the realization of the physical, spiritual and creative abilities of residents of the Voronezh region,” says Chief Engineer of the branch “Rosseti Centre Voronezhenergo” Vyacheslav Antonov.
According to the project, the Kayaking and Canoeing Centre will have a rowing station with lanes, finish and starting towers, sports and playgrounds, boathouses for boats. The Centre will become part of a large sports cluster, which is being built on the dam. It will also include a multifunctional complex with a football field and an ice arena. The commissioning of the sports facilities is scheduled for the end of 2019.
