Over 3 years, Rosseti has reduced the accident rate by 21% in grids of at least 110 kV in the Southern Federal District (9 months of 2020 compared to the same period in 2017).
The physical scope of repair works on key items has been preserved or increased against the previous year. The emergency stock of equipment and materials has been created in full; a fleet of reserve power supply sources has been prepared (212 units, 32.7 MW). 147 ice-melting tests were carried out.
The Company continues the implementation of its investment program with the total amount of financing in the Southern Federal District in 2020 reaching 18.61 billion rubles. 1,550 MVA of transformer capacity and 1,190 km of power lines are planned to be put into operation. Priority projects are the construction of the Angarskaya digital substation, 110 kV, in Krasnodar and the overhaul of the Sadovaya substation, 220 kV, in Volgograd.
Rosseti is actively developing the grid infrastructure to increase cargo traffic to the ports
of the Azov-Black Sea basin. In 2020, it built overhangs from the Vyshesteblievskaya – Buzhora (220 kV) and the Buzhora – Oil Transfer Pumping Station-8 (the 220 kV) power lines to three traction substations of Russian Railways in the Kuban.
As part of the meeting, its participants jointly inspected the Sochi substation, 110 kV, of Rosseti Kuban and special machinery used in the maintenance of energy infrastructure facilities.
