UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 7, 2018. Federal Grid Company United Energy Systems (FGC UES) is planning to have the equipment at thirty-seven of its power substations in Western Siberia upgraded. The project will require RUR 472m in investments, FGC UES’s Western Siberia PR & Media Group reports.

‘We’ll have high-voltage appliances that serve as the link between the electric mains and the transformer substations replaced. As a result, end users in Tyumen Region, Khanty-Mansiysky Autonomous Region, and Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Region (over 3.6m people altogether as well as large oil and gas companies) will be provided with a more stable power supply,’ the company says.

The first stage of the upgrades project has already been completed this year: 58 high-voltage appliances at ten key electric power facilities in Western Siberia (including one of Yamal’s largest power substations, the 500-kilowatt Tarko-Sale Substation) have been replaced. RN Purneftegaz, TransNeft Siberia, and the towns Gubinsky, Tarko-Sale, and Purpe with their 75,000 inhabitants all depend on Tarko-Sale Substation’s reliable performance for their power supply.

According to FGC UES, they are planning to install 432 new high-voltage appliances in their Western Siberia substations by 2020.
