IDGC of Centre — Orelenergo division for several years has been implementing its program to install safe insulated wire for power lines that feed schools, kindergartens and camps. Modern technologies avoid possibilities of having electric shock during a casual touch to electrical equipment, not to mention the fact that protected lines ensure greater reliability and continuity of power supply.
One of the first to evaluate the benefits of safe technologies was the sponsored Znamenskaya boarding school for children from families at social risk. Specialists of IDGC of Centre — Orelenergo division reconstructed and took to service an unowned power line and substation, located in premises the boarding school, installed some elements of street lighting, and insulated wiring in the building.
Power engineers also perform active work at other children’s institutions of the region. In particular, in the past year, the safe wire was pulled in the premises of 53 schools in 24 districts of the region. Over one million 250 thousand rubles were spent on that purpose. This year, it is planned to install insulated wire in several other educational institutions of Orlovsky, Soskovsky and Khotynetsky districts. Thus, in 2012, all schools in the Orel region will be covered through the territories of which power lines of Orelenergo pass.
In addition, at the beginning of the school year experts of Orelenergo will check how well power facilities are protected from possible penetration. Emphasis will be placed on the integrity of locking devices on doors and the availability of warning signs about danger. In indoor transformer substations power engineers will change wooden door s for metal ones and put warning signs on them.
