OREANDA-NEWS. IDGC of Centre conducts systematic work to provide power supply for new industrial and social facilities, life support facilities and housing construction projects in the regions of its service area (11 subjects of the Central Federal District). A number of such significant projects were completed in January-February 2018.

The Orel branch of the company at the beginning of February performed grid connection of the second stage of a new production facility of JSC "HMS Livgidromash" (part of the structure of a large engineering and engineering holding JSC "HMS Group"). To do this, the power company increased the capacity of the 110/10/6 kV substation "Livgidromash", which feeds the enterprise. JSC "HMS Livgidromash" is one of the largest manufacturers of pumping equipment in the territory of Russia, the geography of its supplies covers most regions of Russia and more than 30 countries. IDGC of Centre completed work on the grid connection of its first stage in the spring of 2016, ensuring the supply of 15 MW of capacity to the enterprise. This became another major project of the company within the framework of implementing the state policy of import substitution.

In the Belgorod region IDGC of Centre provided power supply for a new production line of the plant "Veropharm", which produces cytotoxic medicinal forms used in oncology. The company’s products are included in the list of vital medicines and are supplied to all regions of Russia. The project for its modernization and expansion of production started in 2016, in addition to the new line, new production sites and a quality laboratory will be launched within it, the total amount of investments will be 3 billion rubles. The Belgorod branch of IDGC of Centre has already received an application for the supply of 3 MW to the plant in addition to the existing 2.5 MW.

Since the beginning of the year a number of projects in the sphere of agro-industrial complex have been completed in the Tambov region. In Pervomaysky district after modernization one of the largest agricultural enterprises of the region was put into operation - the poultry farm "Ilovaiskaya". The Tambov branch of IDGC of Centre provided power to the agrarian facility in the amount of 3.8 MW. For this purpose, the power engineers reconstructed overhead lines of 10 kV No. 4, 5 "Khobotovskaya", which connect the poultry farm with the 110/35/10 kV substation with the same name.

Tambovenergo’s specialists also supplied power to the first in the region closed-type fish breeding facility for cultivation of valuable species "Tambov sturgeon". For this purpose, a power line was constructed that connected the facility with the 35/10 kV substation "Gorelskaya". "Tambov sturgeon" is one of the priority projects of the agro-industrial complex of the region, which for the time being provides only about 20% of its requirements for fish products with local producers. It is planned that, as a result, a full production cycle will be set up here: from caviar cultivation to production of 30 tons of sturgeon and 30 tons of trout and catfish.

In Morshansky district Tambovenergo’s power engineers connected to the grid a facility for storage and processing of potatoes of "Terra de Luxe" LLC with a capacity of more than 11,000 tons, and in Uvarovsky district a livestock production facility for milk production on the site of the peasant farming enterprise of Vyacheslav Storozhev. The facility for 130 cows with the productivity of more than 500 tons of milk per year was built with the support of the state: of 12.5 million rubles allocated for these purposes, 7.5 million rubles are the funds of a grant for the development of family livestock farms.

In the Yaroslavl region in February, a new production line of the chocolate factory "Sobranie" was put into operation. Its connection to the grid was provided by specialists of Yaroslavl branch of IDGC of Centre, who in a short time installed a new transformer substation of 400 kVA. The productivity of the line is 500 kilograms per hour, it will produce more than 200 varieties of chocolates. The production of the factory "Sobranie" is represented practically in all regions of Russia, about a third of it is exported.

Fulfilling its obligations on timely connection to grids of large industrial facilities and production sites, housing projects, small and medium-sized businesses, IDGC of Centre makes a significant contribution to the social and economic development of the regions of the Central Federal District.
