The work was carried out at the Leninskaya, Ilovaiskaya, Dubrovskaya, Gavrikovo and Novospassskaya substations, which in total provide electricity to more than 1.1 million Muscovites.
The capital’s power engineers have upgraded five large city power substations. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Petr Biryukov.
“The work was carried out at the Leninskaya, Ilovaiskaya, Dubrovskaya, Gavrikovo and Novospassskaya substations, which in total provide electricity to more than 1.1 million Muscovites. An important step was the replacement of oil circuit breakers with SF6 and vacuum circuit breakers, which made it possible to increase the reliability of equipment and continue the high-quality and uninterrupted power supply to the residents of the capital,” said Petr Biryukov.
The new switches have a number of advantages. They are distinguished by increased environmental and fire safety, long overhaul period, high breaking capacity and compact design. Their service life is at least 30 years. In total, power engineers at five substations changed 35 high-voltage circuit breakers and a number of other equipment.
A high level of reliability and trouble-free operation of all engineering life support systems is one of the important components of a comfortable urban environment.
Systematic work is underway in the capital to upgrade power grids and power substations. At the beginning of this year, the main work on the large-scale reconstruction of the Bitsa substation was completed. This made it possible to create additional capacities in the south-west of the capital and in the Novomoskovsky administrative district. In 2023, the commissioning of a new substation “Salaryevo” is planned.
