The accident on the power grid left the center of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk without electricity. The shutdown partially affected 11 streets.

According to the Sakhalinenergo press service, Eastrussia reported that the accident occurred on Monday evening. Two cable lines in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk were disconnected.

“How many consumers are left without electricity, we can’t say,” said Margarita Tatarova, spokeswoman for Sakhalinenergo. - Our services roughly designated the area, it had 11 streets. Now work is ongoing to connect another six streets. But they are not completely disabled, but only partially. ”

According to her, there were no mechanical damages. The cause of the accident is an automatic shutdown.

“Our technical experts say that the lines were built long ago. Now the city has a large amount of construction work, roads are being repaired. The lines simply can not cope, do not withstand the loads and fail, ”Margarita Tatarova said.

Replacing power lines is part of Sakhalinenergo’s plans, but many difficulties arise. When examining the future scope of work, many refuse to contract due to difficulties with the transfer of communications, which will entail additional costs and time.
