The commissioning of these facilities eliminates the power shortage in the north-east of Irkutsk Oblast, creates additional links between the western energy district of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Unified Energy System of Russia, provides reliable power supply to large industrial consumers, including the East Siberia – Pacific Ocean pipeline system, Baikal-Amur Railway, petrochemical, gas, and gold mining enterprises of the country.
Power facilities of the distribution complex, launched in Tyumen Oblast, increase the reliability of power supply to existing consumers in the region and create a significant reserve of capacity for the construction of new residential neighborhoods.
All commissioned substations and power lines were built with the use of almost 100% domestic equipment and software systems.
