Specialists of the Voronezh branch of IDGC of Centre will provide electricity for a new greenhouse for compost production and mushroom cultivation in the village of Rogachevka of Novousmansky district in the Voronezh region. This is the first large-scale project of this kind implemented in the region. According to the company “Voronezh Champignon” LLC, the annual production of the new agricultural facility will be about 10 thousand tons of mushrooms. Its launch will create 250 new jobs.
The facility will be supplied with power from 110 kV substation No. 32 “Nikolskaya” at a voltage level of 35 kV. The maximum power consumption will be 4.95 MW. As part of the implementation of the grid connection agreement, the specialists of IDGC of Centre - Voronezhenergo division will reconstruct 35 kV overhead line No. 40, replace equipment at 110 kV substation No. 32 “Nikolskaya”, as well as at the transit 35 kV substation “Maslovskaya”, 110 kV substation “Moskovskaya” and 35 kV substation “Rogachevka”. The whole set of technical measures is scheduled for completion in 2018.
Earlier, IDGC of Centre provided electricity to a similar enterprise in the Kursk region. In 2017, the energy company connected the mushroom growing facility “Mushroom Rainbow” in the Kursk region, having constructed 15.5 km of 10 kV power lines for this, and in the first half of 2018 increased its capacity by 0.8 MW. The facility “Mushroom Rainbow” produces up to 12 thousand tons of mushroom products per year, providing them in the Kursk region and other regions of the Black Soil Region.
Fulfilling its obligations on timely and full connection to the grid of large industrial facilities and production sites, IDGC of Centre makes a significant contribution to ensuring social and economic development and attracting investments to the regions of the Central Federal District.
