The branch “Rosseti Centre Kostromaenergo” has started implementing its maintenance and repair program. In 2020, Kostroma power engineers will have to repair over 590 transformer substations of 10-0.4 kV and almost 600 kilometres of overhead power lines of various voltage levels. More than 325 million rubles will be allocated for these purposes.
Overhaul will take place, in particular, on 22 lines of 35-110 kV. The power engineers will perform the largest amount of work at the Conductor-110 kV “Sudislavl-Krasnaya Polyana”, Conductor-35 kV “Voronye-Pronino”, Conductor-35 kV “Bui-Shushkodom”, Conductor-110 kV “Vokhma-Pavino”. Equipment repair is also planned at more than 40 substations of voltage levels of 35 and 110 kV. In particular, Kostromaenergo’s specialists will carry out repairs at the 35-110 kV substations “Krenevo”, “Novaya”, “Krivyachka”, “Ledengsk”, “Zavetluzhye”, which are included in the plan of the repair program for 5 years.
Much attention will continue to be paid to clearing routes of power lines from trees and shrubs, which is carried out in order to prevent occurrence of emergency situations. This year, Kostromaenergo’s specialists have to clear more than 1,700 hectares of routes of power lines. About 66 million rubles will be allocated for these purposes.
“The repair program is one of the key production activities for the power engineers. Substations are the main link in the power supply system of consumers. Their timely and high-quality repair is the key to the successful passage of the autumn-winter period. With the help of modern methods of organizing and applying new technologies, the branch will be able to provide reliable power supply to consumers, increase the lifecycle of the equipment and reduce the cost of planned work,” stressed Acting First Deputy Director - Chief Engineer of the Kostromaenergo branch Alexander Chutkov.
