At the meeting of the Rosseti Group’s Headquarters, its Director General Pavel Livinskiy emphasized that the Company fulfilled all its commitments to prepare the infrastructure for the autumn-winter period and was fully adapted to the constraints associated with COVID-19.
This year, the financing for the repair campaign within the Group as a whole increased by 9% to reach 70.2 billion rubles. As of October 1, the program for the main range of equipment was completed in full. The emergency stock has been created to 100% (17.6 billion rubles in terms of cost). 10,111 repair teams were established; 5,937 standby power supply sources were prepared (with a total capacity of 464.4 MW).
According to Pavel Livinskiy, “Energy is an industry that shall operate permanently: in extreme cold, during a pandemic, in times of economic turbulence. We have well coped with the difficult spring months. Now, we have a reasonable balance between remote and in-person work. Due to our reserve in digital transformation, the Company is ready to resume the April-May mode, if necessary, without decreasing our labor productivity and quality of services; all algorithms for this have been perfected.”
