Yekaterinburg Electrical Network Company extends list of companies to receive limited electricity supplies

6 September 2006 (10:00)

Four more enterprises allowed Yekaterinburg Electrical Network Company to limit their supplies of electricity in case one of the power transformers breaks down during the most strenuous winter days, reports the spokesperson for the Company.

These are N.A. Semikhatov Scientific Production Association, UralElastoTekhnika CJSC, the local oil and mayonnaise producing company, and ElectroTrans CJSC. Therefore, the electricity supplier now has the consent of 12 companies that use the most heavily loaded substations.

One of these substations known as Trud experienced a major breakdown of a power transformer in the village of Kalinovka. This was reportedly caused by too many consumers using the network illegally and without any supervision. Chkalovskaya, Vesna, Malyshevskaya, Yasnaya, Bratskaya, Uzlovaya, Dalnyaa, Zapadnaya, and Novinskaya substations are accident-prone as well, since these are the substations with transformers moat likely to be heavily overloaded in the coming winter.
