Let the great autumn holiday give you a lot of joy and optimism. We wish you a good mood, vigor, warmth and comfort in the home, prosperity and good luck.”

Welcoming the guests, honorary citizen of the city of Tambov, honoured worker of culture Igor Nikolayev said: “In my view the power engineering profession is akin the profession of the submariner. It is necessary to have a certain amount of courage, to rely on mutual aid and support from colleagues. That is why it is important today to see a continuous connection between the generations, in the audience there are both veterans and young people present.”
