Two facilities of CJSC Troparevo were connected. To provide power supply to a feedlot for animals in the Sychevsky district, the branch’s specialists constructed a 10 kV overhead line. The maximum power provided to the facility was 140 kW. The facility is a complex for acceptance and processing of grain, which specializes in growing grain crops to provide a feed base for pig breeding complexes located in the Smolensk region. It was built as part of the investment project of the Smolensk region “Project for the construction of a feed mill with an elevator”.
At the end of June, the power engineers completed the grid connection of the Troparevo dairy plant in the Khislavichsky district with a capacity of 318 kW. Considering the high social and industrial importance of the agricultural facility under construction, Smolenskenergo’s specialists completed the construction of the power grid infrastructure for the facility to be connected ahead of the planned timeframe stipulated by the terms of the grid connection agreement.
