The Company's achievements for the year 2015:
Power to the regions
Developing the electric grid infrastructure of the Central and Volga regions of the country, energy of IDGC of Center and Volga region introduced about 2,400 km of transmission lines and more than 350 MVA of transformer capacity. The largest and most important projects have been implemented in the Kaluga, Tula and Nizhny Novgorod regions. Reconstruction and modernization of existing power facilities, building new allowed us to increase the reliability and quality of electricity supply, reduce the energy deficit of the power centers.
In March 2015, in Kaluga region there was completed the construction of the substation (SS) 110/10 kV "kolosovo" and double circuit transmission lines 110 kV "Sozvezdie-kolosovo". This ensured the possibility of technological connection of new consumers in the Western site of the industrial Park "Vorsino".
In the Nizhny Novgorod region to increase the reliability of power supply, Bogorodsky district was the reconstruction of the substation 110 kV "Leather".
Key investment projects 2015 in Tula region became the reconstruction of overhead power lines (VL) 110 kV Zvezda-Begichëvo" with a tap on ol 110 kV Zvezda-Volovo", as well as complex reconstruction of substation 110/10/6 kV "Oktyabrskaya" with replacement of power transformers. The successful implementation of the tasks of reconstruction of the substation will allow to provide perspective build-up of Zarechensky area of Tula and the surrounding areas with the necessary electricity and power, will significantly improve the quality and reliability of power supply of consumers of the city.
In General, the company's investment program for 2015 were provided for the modernization and development of all nine regional energy systems under the management of IDGC of Center and Volga region.
2015 has become for energy companies and important in the field of innovation - obtained 3 patents for invention and 1 utility model. For the first time in Russia in the branch "Nizhnovenergo" has passed experimental-industrial operation area innovation network at the voltage of 0.95 kV. The use of innovative network allows to increase the reliability of the power grid complex to reduce the cost of technical maintenance of networks, to minimize the loss of electricity and the impact of production processes on the environment. The program of innovative development of the grid complex infrastructure is actively implemented in the energy company since 2011. Now the Company is the holder of 26 patents and certificates for innovative devices, software, diagnostics, networking. These developments will be commissioned at the power facilities that will help to solve the problem of increasing the reliability of supply to consumers at a higher level.
Reduction of losses
In 2015 due to the successful implementation of the program of energy saving and energy efficiency increase of IDGC of Center and Volga region managed to reduce electricity losses by 0.16 percentage points (compared to 2014). The total effect of the implementation of the program amounted to 215 million kWh (more than 250 million rubles.).
By the end of 2015, the Company signed 51`603 contracts for technological connection for a total capacity of 1`323 MW, including 48`491 treaties concluded with the "privileged" applicants up to 15 kW (94 % of the total number of contracts). To 89 days reduced the average time from receipt of application to registration of the act of technological connection to networks.
Security in the workplace - a priority in the policy of IDGC of Centre and Volga region". The life and health of employees of IDGC of Center and Volga region is a core value of the company. Regular safety training sessions, exercises and testing of the staff help to prevent accidents in the workplace.
