“Today is an important event for the industry, because we are commissioning modern digital facilities that are being implemented in accordance with the digitalization program approved by the Board of Directors of Rosseti. New modern customer service and grid control centres are also beginning to operate. I am glad that the company is implementing a large-scale program aimed at increasing efficiency and creating opportunities for connecting consumers,” said Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak, congratulating all the employees who participated in the design and construction with the significant event, as well as the upcoming New Year.
Rosseti today in total is commissioning more than 240 MVA of new transformer capacities. This is equal to the consumption of an industrial city with a population of over 300 thousand people. A powerful impulse is being formed for the socio-economic development of a number of subjects of our country. The new grid control centres will enable energy supply management at a qualitatively new level for more than 2.2 million residents, and modern comfortable customer service centres, which today will open their doors to first visitors, will be able to serve more than 50 thousand people a year and offer new services,” stressed the head of Rosseti, Pavel Livinskiy, in his report.
Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region commissioned three modernized digital facilities for operational and technological management: the City Dispatch Centre of Belgorodenergo and the Grid Control Centres of Bryanskenergo and Marienergo.
Dispatch points are organized on the basis of a fundamentally new managerial structure of operational and technological management, which provides for the reduction of grid facilities management levels, full automation of processes and, as a result, reduction of time for eliminating technological violations and taking customer services to a new level. The City Dispatch Centre of Belgorodenergo will manage grids of the city of Belgorod and the Belgorodsky district, the Grid Control Centres of Bryanskenergo and Marienergo - grid facilities of their regions. The dispatch control from Distribution Zones will be transferred here.
All centres are equipped with digital communication channels and modern information systems that allow real-time monitoring of the state of electric grid facilities, see the flow of electric energy and power, analyze the parameters of electric power quality, current voltage data at consumers’ premises, and coordinate the work of on-site and repair crews.
General Director of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region Igor Makovskiy noted the effective cooperation of the power engineers with the leaders of the regions where the new power facilities were opened. “Effective interaction with Governors allows us to successfully implement large-scale projects, increasing the reliability of electricity supply, bringing the electric power industry to a new level of development. The facilities commissioned today will be another significant step towards providing a qualitatively new level of power supply to consumers in all regions of our presence.”
“On behalf of numerous consumers of the Belgorod region, I want to thank the power engineers for this modern facility. In the Belgorod region, the digital transformation has become irreversible primarily due to the head of Rosseti and General Director of Rosseti Centre Igor Makovskiy, as well as the entire team of Belgorod power engineers. For our part, we will continue to support all your endeavors and projects in order to build a smart energy system of the Belgorod region, which in turn will become part of the smart system of the Russian Federation,” said Governor of the Belgorod Region Yevgeny Savchenko.
