Igor Makovskiy, General Director of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga region, headed the exercises for practicing emergency response measures at power grid facilities of a branch of Rosseti Centre, PJSC - Tverenergo in adverse weather conditions.

The Tver region was not chosen as a site by chance. In addition to the fact that there is the largest length of grids in Central Russia, the region has many rugged forests and swampy areas, and the autumn-winter season is characterized by inconsistent weather, which complicates the operation of the power grid complex.

During the exercises, a scenario was launched for development of massive technological violations, to eliminate which, in addition to the forces and assets of the Tver branch of Rosseti Centre, by the decision of General Director Igor Makovskiy, crews and backup power supplies from other branches of the company were involved.

When gathering and redeploying mobile crews to restore power supply, the effectiveness and coherence of interaction, the readiness of employees and specialized vehicles to respond promptly to emergency situations were assessed. Aircraft and helicopter-type unmanned aerial vehicles were used to locate faults on power lines.

In total, according to the training scenario, 352 crews were involved in the recovery activities, consisting of 2,457 personnel and 985 vehicles, including 120 crews from the regions within the service area of Rosseti Centre, PJSC and Rosseti Centre and Volga region, PJSC.

The specialists of the power grid company as quickly as possible solved the tasks set to restore the power supply to consumers, confirming their readiness to work in difficult weather conditions.

"The conducted exercises are part of the systematic work aimed at ensuring the reliable and high-quality functioning of the power grid infrastructure of the Tver region. The power engineers of Tverenergo and their colleagues from neighbouring regions have shown a high level of preparation for the prompt elimination of emergencies. The experience gained by the participants of the events will contribute to the uninterrupted power supply to consumers in the heating season of 2021-2022," stressed Igor Makovskiy, General Director of Rosseti Centre, PJSC - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga region, PJSC.
