Power engineers are preparing to ensure uninterrupted power supply to enterprises and residential buildings in the Lipetsk region in the autumn-winter period.
The branch “Rosseti Centre Lipetskenergo” took part in the All-Russian Civil Defense Training, which has traditionally been held for several years on the eve of the Civil Defense Day of the Russian Emergencies Ministry. It lasted two days. On the first day, the power engineers took part in a review of civil defense forces and means on the embankment in the regional centre. At the disposal of Lipetskenergo there are all necessary specialized vehicles for rapid response and elimination of consequences of emergency situations of a natural and technogenic nature. At the review, the branch was presented by an on-site crew with a specially equipped gas vehicle with a generator trailer, a heating system, convenient compartments for the life of the personnel and the transportation of necessary equipment and materials. Among the advantages of the presented equipment there is the presence of the GLONASS navigation system, which ensures the optimization of transport logistics. In all Distribution Zones of the enterprise, a review of elements of civil defense forces and means was also held.
At the second stage of the exercises, Lipetskenergo’s specialists worked out practical skills to deal with consequences of emergency situations and fires. In accordance with the introductory data obtained, the power engineers conditionally restored power supply disrupted as a result of freezing rain, and also took part in comprehensive trainings to eliminate consequences of fires.
