Employees of Primorsky Electric Networks protect their facilities from seasonal floods and fires. Special attention is now being paid to areas of possible flooding and monitoring of hot spots.

According to the press service of JSC "DRSK" (part of the RusHydro group), in the area of ​​responsibility of Primorsky electrical networks, 600 towers are located in areas where flooding is possible due to spring floods. The report notes that there is no immediate danger to power facilities now. Particular attention is paid to objects located in close proximity to the rivers Ussuri, Malinovka, Arsenyevka, Ilistaya, Chernigovka, Shmakovka and others. Power engineers are constantly monitoring the operation of equipment, buildings and structures that fall into areas of possible flooding, check the condition of the foundations of the supports, and protect the bases of the supports from ice drift. The branch specialists are in constant interaction with emergency services, forecasters and hydrologists.

Employees of Primorsky electrical networks in advance examined the condition of substations and transitions of power lines through water barriers, as well as those located in river floodplains and swampy areas.

An equally large amount of work has been done in order to protect power supply facilities from fire. Power engineers have renewed mineralized strips, are monitoring the fire situation in those territories where power lines and other energy infrastructure facilities are located. In addition to close contact with the Ministry of Emergency Situations and local authorities, the staff of the Primorsky Electric Networks branch conducts trainings, practicing actions in the face of a fire threatening power facilities. 

At the power facilities in the area of ​​responsibility of the Primorsky branch of the DRSK, 2 fires were recorded since the beginning of the fire hazardous season, with damage to 2 wooden supports. The specialists promptly restored the power supply to consumers, which had been disrupted as a result of the fall, and replaced the damaged equipment.

The fire safety of substations and power lines to a large extent depends on the residents of the Primorsky Territory - most of the emergencies and fires occur through the fault of a person, therefore power engineers ask everyone, without exception, to be extremely careful and not to make open fires near power facilities. If damaged, one or more settlements may remain without electricity for a long time.
