According to meteorological forecasts, on Tuesday, 8 January, in most regions of the service area of IDGC of Centre and IDGC of Centre and Volga Region (operating in 20 regions of the Russian Federation), snowfalls are expected. In this regard, power engineers of the two companies are operating in the maximum operation mode: they have strengthened control over the operation of electric grid facilities and are ready to take all necessary measures to ensure uninterrupted power supply to consumers.
The power engineers additionally have checked the technical condition of equipment and emergency control automation, the availability of an emergency stock of materials, and the readiness for operation of backup power supply sources. The notification and call schemes for operating and maintenance personnel was also checked. Additional instructions were given to staff on duty.
Please, be reminded that to ensure reliable and uninterrupted operation of the power grid complex on holidays and weekends from 30 December to 8 January, IDGC of Centre and IDGC of Centre and Volga Region switched to an enhanced operation mode. The companies organized round-the-clock duty of dispatching and technical services, employees of operating and maintenance crews, duty substations of branches and managers. Special control over the operation of electrical equipment and power lines was set.
The communication scheme and procedure for interaction with services of the EMERCOM, territorial divisions of Rostechnadzor, executive authorities and local governments, operating companies of PJSC ROSSETI, and other territorial electric grid organizations were developed. Additional measures of fire safety and antiterrorist protection of facilities of the electric grid complex were taken.
