First Deputy General Director of RusHydro Roman Berdnikov reported on the progress of the program for the modernization and reconstruction of the power grid complex of the Primorsky Territory (MIREK) at a meeting on the integrated development of the energy system of the Primorsky Territory. The meeting was held in Vladivostok under the chairmanship of the plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev.

As EastRussia was informed in the press service of JSC "DRSK", at the meeting, Roman Berdnikov also spoke about the work being done to consolidate the power grid facilities of the region on the basis of the Far Eastern distribution grid company RusHydro.

The MIREK program was developed after analyzing the technical reasons for large-scale blackouts in Primorye at the end of last year as a result of freezing rain. MIREK includes measures for the reconstruction of electrical networks, modernization of substation equipment, repair work, improvement of equipment with special equipment, backup power supply sources, an increase in the throughput of 110 kV overhead lines feeding traction substations of Russian Railways, as well as expansion of clearing of glades.

The MIREK program has been agreed with the Government of the Primorsky Territory, measures for its implementation are included in the investment and production programs of the DRSK. Funding for the program until 2025 is RUB 15,3 billion. For the current year, funding for the program is planned in the amount of 2,2 billion rubles.

According to Roman Berdnikov, at the moment, within the framework of the program, the construction of a 35 kV cable line Solers-RP4 (Substation Churkin) has been completed, The reconstruction of the 110/2/35 kV Zapadnaya SS and the 110/35 kV Promuzel SS, as well as the reconstruction of 6-110 kV networks (6 supports have been installed) are under way. In accordance with the schedule, work is underway to renovate buildings, expand glades, and supply special equipment (0,4 units).

Also in his report, Roman Berdnikov dwelled on measures to consolidate the power grid assets of Primorye on the basis of the DRSK. In accordance with the decision of the government commission for ensuring the safety of power supply, the Primorsky Territory has been identified as one of the pilot regions for testing the model of consolidation of power grid facilities. A corresponding agreement on cooperation between RusHydro, the Ministry for the Development of the East and the Government of the Primorsky Territory was concluded in September this year within the framework of EEF-21.

The purpose of the consolidation project is to improve the reliability of the network infrastructure and the quality of power supply to consumers in Primorsky Krai. The reason for its development and implementation was the low standards of maintenance and the failure to fulfill the investment programs of the territorial grid organizations (TGO) of the region, as a result - the poor technical condition of the grid facilities belonging to them and the low level of reliability of power supply to the region.

At present, the total length of power transmission lines of all TGOs of Primorsky Krai is about 40 thousand km, of which over 37 thousand km fall on distribution networks with a voltage class of 35 kV and below, which are characterized by the highest accident rate. Consolidation of these assets on the basis of the largest grid organization of the region - DRSK RusHydro - will improve the reliability and quality of power supply through the use of uniform maintenance standards, reduce the time to eliminate the consequences of accidents, and increase the rationality of the use of funds received from their tariff source.

According to Roman Berdnikov, at present RusHydro, together with the Government of the Primorsky Territory, is conducting an audit of power grid facilities to assess their technical condition, determine measures to bring them to a standard state, and find out the existence of title documents.

At the same time, the participants of the meeting noted that the experience of interaction with municipalities testifies to their inertia in changing the existing patterns of interaction with TGO. To change the situation, it is necessary to intensify work with local governments on the transfer of municipal power grid facilities to the operation of the DRSK.

Also during the meeting, its participants discussed the issue of gas supply to power facilities in the Primorsky Territory. This topic is especially relevant due to the fact that modernization and construction of large generating facilities, which will use natural gas as the main fuel, are currently being carried out in the region.
