Stable performance upon the results of autumn and winter period was achieved through the implementation of all production programs of the company's subsidiaries. Like before, we are still faced with the tasks of a top priority that are ensuring the system reliability of the power grid and introducing digital technology in key production processes," Chief Engineer of the Rosseti Group noted during his speech.
