Specialists of JSC Voronezh Gorelektroset (from November 2019 included in the perimeter of the functional responsibility of the Rosseti Centre company) as soon as possible provided power to the site on which the construction of the pre-fabricated building of the infectious disease hospital is underway.
The decision on the need to build a new medical institution was made after an online meeting between Alexander Gusev and President Vladimir Putin on 22 April. The development site was allotted in the city of Voronezh on Rostovskaya Street, in close proximity to Emergency Hospital No. 8. The hospital will be erected according to a standard project of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. The hospital has a capacity of 250 beds.
The importance of maintaining the supply of electricity to medical institutions in the prevailing unfavourable epidemiological situation was pointed out by Pavel Livinskiy, Director General of Rosseti’s Group of Companies. All structural subdivisions of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region strictly comply with the instructions of the head of the group of companies.
Work on the construction of the medical facility began on 25 April. To provide the builders with the necessary electric power with a total capacity of 300 kW, the experts of Voronezh Gorelektroset installed 18 new poles for just two days, mounted 900 metres of a 0.4 kV power line, five disconnecting switches on poles and in transformer substations, as well as three ground loops.
In turn, specialists of the branch “Rosseti Centre Voronezhenergo” started construction work to continuously provide electricity to the future infectious disease hospital. The power engineers will lay two cable lines of 6 kV with a length of 1,700 metres each from 110 kV substation (SS) No. 43, install a package transformer substation with two transformers with a power of 1,600 kVA each, and also construct four 0.4 kV cable lines with a total length of 400 metres. The power engineers plan to carry out all the work as soon as possible, so that by the time the infectious disease hospital is put into operation, it will immediately switch to the main power supply scheme.
