In the first quarter of 2019 power engineers from the Krasnodar branch of Kubanenergo PJSC (Rosseti Group) following the Repair Programme repaired 12 high voltage power lines. The facilities are essential for power supply to dozens of settlements as well as infrastructure in part of Krasnodar and its suburbs.
In the course of works our specialists performed a range of activities, namely: they replaced old porcelain insulators with modern ones made of tempered glass, which are long-lasting and have a greater insulating capacity; then our teams repaired and replaced contact joints and ground wire, and renovated information and warning signs on the poles of power lines.
Our specialists also maintained the right-of-ways under and around power lines – they cleared 35 hectares from trees vegetation. This is an essential part of the Repair Programme, because the majority of power cuts and emergencies occur in the result of trees falling on power lines. Therefore, timely and properly organized clearing of transmission lines right-of-ways is the best prevention of power cuts in bad weather.
The Repair Programme of Krasnodar Electric Networks focuses on enhancement of reliability, safe operation and efficiency of power grid in Krasnodar and six neighboring districts of the region and the Republic of Adygea.
