Specialists of the branch “Rosseti Centre Tambovenergo” provided electricity to the new high-tech Michurinsky Greenhouse Combine, which is located in the Michurinsky district of the Tambov region.
The power supply of the facility will be provided from the 110/35/10 kV “Yuzhnaya” substation. The maximum power consumption will be 2.5 MW. As part of the implementation of the grid connection agreement, the Tambovenergo branch constructed a 10 kV power line with a total length of 11 km, reconstructed a 10 kV bay at the 110/35/10 kV “Yuzhnaya” substation with the installation of a 10 kV vacuum circuit breaker and microprocessor relay protection units.
In the greenhouse complex will be grown tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, lettuce, greens. All cultivation areas will be equipped with a system of artificial lighting of plants, which will allow to grow fresh vegetables all year round. High efficiency and stable product quality will be ensured by automated climate control systems and computerized control of plant growth changes and condition.
Upon reaching the design capacity of the whole complex, the volume of vegetable production will be from 50 to 100 thousand tons per year (depending on crops). The planned total area of all lines will be 100 hectares. The company plans to provide jobs for about 1,500 people. After the implementation of all stages of construction, the enterprise will become the largest modern greenhouse complex for growing vegetables under glass in Russia.
“The agricultural sector has huge potential and great prospects. The development of greenhouse vegetable growing is a priority area of the agro-industrial complex of the Tambov region as part of the course on import substitution. Fulfilling its obligations on timely and fully connection to the grid of large industrial facilities and production sites, Tambovenergo makes a significant contribution to ensuring socio-economic development and attracting investments in the region,” stressed Deputy General Director - Director of the branch “Rosseti Centre Tambovenergo” Nikolay Bogomolov.
