Oblkommunenergo Does Emergency Drills at Chlorinator Station

Experts from Oblkommunenergo State Unitary Enterprise coordinated an emergency drill for Sverdlovsk Region division of the DoE at Kirovgrad chlorinator station for deferrization. The drills were related to a hypothetical technological emergency caused by a container leakage and some liquid chlorine getting outside,’ the company’s PR Department reports.

Under this scenario, a fault in the isolation valves of the chlorine-containing vessel led to a leakage; 0.8 tons of liquid and gaseous chlorine were emitted.

The experts’ actions were estimated very highly by Mayor of Kirovgrad Alexander Oskin and the drill leader and a representative of the regional DoE Vladimir Kremlev.

A debrief followed the practice so that some problems spots and mistakes as well as unaccounted-for risks could be singled out, and some recommendations on how to improve the efficiency of the team members’ work were made.
