Safety provision at electric facilities both for the company’s personnel and third parties — one of the main tasks of the management system of IDGC of Centre. The company performs a large amount of systematic and interdisciplinary work not only with the staff, which provides high qualification and therefore safe working skills in all situations, but also with the population.
One of the priorities of safety provision in IDGC of Centre is also the use of equipment with electrical safety design. This year, while implementing investment projects, using new equipment and technologies, developing and implementing innovative solutions the company intends to pay special attention to this area.
For several years, for reconstruction and new construction IDGC of Centre has been using the insulation technology of busbars and busbar systems with appropriate materials (heat shrinkable tape, heat shrinkable tubing, etc.). Insulation significantly increases the reliability of power facility operation: in many cases it eliminates short circuiting and disconnection of equipment caused by hit of animals, birds and foreign objects (tree branches, etc.), but most important — to avoid traumatizing factors for intentional or accidental abuse of the operation of electrical installations. This year, all branches will continue implementation of insulation between entrance bushings of transformers of
The use of self-supporting insulated wire (SIW) on 0.4 kV power lines and protected wires for
In the construction of a modern compact substation the company uses innovative equipment, which eliminates the possibility of access to energized electrical parts. Such requirements are met by the 110 kV switchgear, 110 kV gas-insulated monoblocks, which are an effective and safe solution.
Based on this same principle — the impossibility to access the electrical parts located under voltage — in IDGC of Centre for new construction and reconstruction of
