The branch “Rosseti Centre Voronezhenergo” summed up the implementation of the repair program for four months of 2020. All activities planned for the reporting period were completed in full and on time.
Since the beginning of the year, Voronezhenergo’s specialists have repaired 120 transformer substations and more than 690 km of overhead power lines of 0.4 -110 kV, replacing over 7,000 insulators and 5.5 km of lightning protection cable. To ensure reliable energy supply to consumers, more than 690 ha of routes along power lines of various voltage levels were cleared from tree and shrub vegetation. The costs of implementing the full range of works under the repair program for 5 months of 2020 amounted to about 80 million rubles.
“Despite the difficult epidemiological situation in the region in connection with the coronavirus, the power engineers do not slow down the pace of maintenance and repair. The ongoing work is aimed at preparing the region’s electric grid complex for trouble-free passage of the upcoming autumn-winter period, as well as ensuring the reliability of energy supply to consumers,” stressed Vyacheslav Antonov, Director of “Rosseti Centre Voronezhenergo”.
In total, in 2020, Voronezhenergo’s power engineers will have to repair over 430 transformer substations of 10-0.4 kV and nearly 2,000 kilometres of overhead power lines of various voltage levels, clear over 1,400 hectares of routes along power lines. Equipment repair is also planned at more than 60 substations of voltage levels of 35 and 110 kV. In particular, it will be held at 110 kV substations No. 21 “Vostochnaya”, No. 16 “South-West”, No. 28 “Teplichnaya” and No. 32 in the city of Voronezh, providing power supply to such large industrial and socially significant consumers as Mechanical Plant, KBHA , Ceramic plant, JSC “Voronezh Gorelektroset”, Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant. In total, in 2020, Voronezhenergo will allocate about 600 million rubles for the implementation of the maintenance and repair program.
