Head of Kurskenergo said that during the reporting period the branch fully met targets of the productive supply of electricity to consumers (over 5 billion kWh), as well as production programs of repairs and maintenance. 25 substations of 35-110 kV and 409 transformer substations and distribution points had their comprehensive overhaul. 765.5 km of overhead lines of 35-110 kV and 2,138.2 km of 0.4-10 kV were repaired.
As part of the investment program implementation specialists of Kurskenergo performed in the past year construction and reconstruction projects of important for the region power facilities. In May 2014 in Pristensky district of the Kursk region the new substation (SS) 110/10kV "Revival" was put into operation. The project was implemented within the framework of a grid connection contract for facilities of the group of companies (GC) "Miratorg - Belgorod". Kurskenergo’s specialists performed grid connection of a closed cycle pig farm and veterinary utilization plant with a total capacity of more than 7.5 MW. In Soviet district the 35/10kV substation "Mansurovo" construction was completed, which optimized the power supply circuit to the existing customers of Soviet district and resolved the issue of grid restrictions. "Mansurovo" also allows to create reserve capacity for dynamically developing agricultural production in the eastern part of the Kursk region. It is the third largest substation in the new century, which Kurskenergo constructed from scratch.
