UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 30, 2017. Rosset’s Federal Grid Company United Energy Systems upgraded the high-frequency choke units at its 220-kilowatt Kholmogorskaya-Kogalym main in Western Siberia, the company press service reports.

The goal is to make electric power transfer between Yamalo-Nenetsky and Khanty-Mansiysky Autonomous Regions more reliable, as this is where the key oil and gas companies are based.

Three high-frequency chokes at the 500-kilowatt Kholmogorskaya Station in Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous District were reinforced with suspended insulators to improve their performance in strong wind.

The chokes are part of the centralized emergency control automatics system that ensure signal and control instruction transfer.

The 220-kilowatt Kholmogorskaya-Kogalym main is 85 km long and ensures power transfer from Surgut Power Station to Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous District’s Noyabrsky Division. The main is also involved in the power supply system of Lukoil Western Siberia’s oil and gas facilities.
