FGC UES to Get More Vehicles for West Siberian Teams

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 1, 2017. Rosset’s Federal Grid Company United Energy Systems is going to buy nineteen more special-purpose vehicles and automobiles for its rescue and engineering teams in Western Siberia, the company press service reports.

The vehicles will be used to ensure better performance for the three West Siberian regions’ power facilities and to improve the working conditions there.

The Western Siberia’s engineering teams got seventeen new vehicles this year already, including an all-wheel drive tractor with a semitrailer meant for transportation of off-roaders, a number of freight trucks with loader cranes, and autohydraulic hoists (hoisting capacity: up to 30 meters), and two Trom 8 snow and swamp-going vehicles. These all-wheel, eight-wheel vehicles can cover impassable roads, marshy fields, and cross rivers and lakes, travel through deep snow, and are suited for very low temperature conditions. They also cost several times less to maintain than their caterpillar-tracked counterparts.

The engineering and rescue teams currently have 350 different vehicles at their disposal. These are mostly wheeled and tracked off-roaders that are used to take the repair mechanics and their equipment to the scene of an accident as well as serve as temporary accommodation if necessary.
