Field drilling rigs PBU-1000 and PBU-100 were used to equip the point of field water supply from buried sources and preserve water. For the purpose of water desalination, YuVO engineers used the newest reagent-free system for water purification and conservation MKKV-1000.

In addition, during the special training, the specialists of the engineering divisions of the Southern Military District organized field power supply for the troops.

The mobile repair team used a mobile engineering and repair complex (PIRK) to accomplish this task. Also, for the first time in the field, wind power generators and solar panels were used as sources of energy supply.
