IDGC of Centre - Tambovenergo division fully restored power supply in the Tambov region in its service area, local interruptions in 0.4 kV networks were removed. Power supply with the main 35-110 kV power circuit was achieved already in the morning on 3 February.

Adverse weather conditions such as rain, wet snow and gusty winds caused power outages in some areas of the Tambov region. The power engineers immediately sent all available forces and means to eliminate the consequences of the disaster. 81 crews (430 people) were on the around the clock duty for more than three days, in their work 176 vehicles were used to provide residents of the region with electricity as quickly as possible.

A particular challenge in the Tambov region was created by snow drifts, high accident rate on the roads and resulting traffic jams, which made it difficult for repair crews to move quickly to problem areas. Despite this, the Tambov power engineers promptly powered socially important facilities, bringing redundant power supply sources there.
