In addition, during this period the company completed a large-scale project to create an electric grid infrastructure for the largest enterprises in the Central Federal District for growing and processing poultry meat, established on the basis of LLC "Tambov Turkey" and OJSC "Tokarevskaya Poultry Plant". The work was carried out within the framework of the concession agreement signed in 2015 between IDGC of Centre and the administration of the Tambov region, which became the first example of public-private partnership in the power grid complex. To supply the Tambov turkey plant with a production capacity of 50,000 tons of turkey meat a year, 180 km of 6-10 kV power lines and 19 transformer substations of 10/0.4 kV with a total capacity of 33.7 MVA were constructed. The main part of the facilities has already been connected to the grid, one facility - fattening site No. 9 - will be connected as the construction is completed, planned for the end of 2017. To ensure the delivery by the Tokarevskaya poultry plant of 150 thousand tons of poultry, IDGC of Centre put into operation the substation 110/10 kV "Fabrichnaya" in 2016.

Fulfilling its obligations on timely connection to grids of large industrial facilities and production sites, housing, 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.
