The company has already spent 400m RUR on repairs and renovation since the beginning of the year, and all the works were completed well before the due date. It has also given overhaul to 293 6-110-kilowatt substations, 498 kilometers of mains, 86 transformers, and 322 switches, cleaned up 174 hectares of main areas, and replaced 343 cubic meters of woodwork. The emphasis was put on the municipal mains managed by the company.

The enterprise is also busy renovating equipment and mains in the city of Chelyabinsk and the region’s mining areas, for example, replacing cables with the larger ones and installing more powerful transformers.
