FGC UES to Invest RUR 472m in Western Siberia Stations Upgrades

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.
