In the Plavsky district, power engineers of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region Tulenergo launched the first digital 35/10 kV substation “Miratorg” in the region to power installations of a vegetable storage and processing plant of Miratorg-Orel LLC.
The construction of the “Miratorg” substation was carried out in record time, well ahead of schedule. In March of this year, an agreement was signed on the grid connection of electrical installations; three months later, the contractor had already begun work. In August, the first phase of the substation was put under load.
Thus, nine months after filing an application for the grid connection, the Miratorg company received the necessary capacity.
“Given the importance of this project as a whole for the region, we have implemented it at a faster pace. Successful implementation of all planned activities, first of all, will increase the quality of power supply to consumers, ensure the availability of equipment and adaptability of the grid infrastructure to new tasks. In addition, agro-industrial and agricultural enterprises continue to develop in the region. New jobs appear, and the population is provided with high-quality local products. We are glad that we were able to contribute to this process by providing all the conditions for connection to the electric grid,” stressed Igor Makovskiy, General Director of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region.
The new “Miratorg” 35/10 kV digital substation is equipped with two 35/10 kV power transformers with a capacity of 6.3 MVA each. For the grid connection of the electrical equipment of the agricultural holding enterprise, two 35 kV power lines with a total length of 6.5 km were constructed. First Deputy General Director - Director for Development of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region Vitaly Akulichev emphasized: “We continue to implement the concept of digital transformation of the electric grid complex of the Tula region. Today we have opened the first 35 kV digital substation in the region, in the next 2 years we plan to commission larger power facilities: a 110 kV digital substation, a digital Distribution Zone and a number of other projects of the Digital Transformation Program.”
