During the reporting period the branch received 4,963 applications for connection to the electricity grid. Number of contracts amounted to 4,391.
Among the major grid connection facilities recently are an enterprise to produce toilet paper and paper base for sanitary purposes «Syktyvkar Tissue Group». The facility was constructed in the village of Semibratovo on the site of a gas-cleaning system «Fingo». In accordance with the application the power engineers provided 8 MW to the investor from Syktyvkar. The premises of the Semibratovo plant gets its energy from the substation 110/10 kV Estuary. Low utilization of the feeding centre and the availability of infrastructure allowed to connect the new customer from the same substation without construction of additional overhead lines and transformer points. Thus, the large facility was connected as soon as possible, immediately after the applicant had performed required technical conditions.
