FGC UES Improves Power Supply in Western Siberia

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 31, 2017. Rosset’s Federal Grid Company United Energy System carried its usual scheduled heat monitoring of electric units at its power substations in Western Siberia and eliminated problems that were detected during the checks, the company press service reports.

This is meant to prevent emergencies and to ensure a more reliable power supply to the area’s 3.5m-plus end users.

‘We use a thermal imager to do our heat monitoring routines: the imager traces even the smallest temperature fluctuations, which allows to detect problems at a very early stage and fix them without having to shut the system down,’ the press service says.

Another round of checks has been scheduled for the fall of 2017. FGC UES’ heat monitoring experts in Western Siberia will have to test power facilities in the south of Tyumen Region and in Khanty-Mansiysky and Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Regions.
