Branch of OAO "UES FGC" — Trunk Power Grids (MEA) of the South — has completed construction of 220 kV transmission line RP Volgodonsk — Mining length of 106 km, passing through the territory of Rostov and Volgograd regions. The power transmitted by the line Gremyachinsk GOK, will be 142 MW.
The line is designed for power supply under construction near Volgograd Gremyachinskoye mining and processing plant. LEP has 18 intersections with other lines of 110 — 500 kV. During the building were equipped with transitions across the pond in Kotelnikovo area of the Volgograd region and the river Erik, set supports 563, of which 70 anchor-angle and 493 intermediate, and installed 318 km of wire. Also, instead of ground wire set 1119 suppressors, which will protect the line from lightning and switching surges of electrical equipment.
The main construction work was completed in five months, which is two times faster than usual. Issuance of electricity will be supplied from a distribution substation (RP) 220 kV Volgodonsk. To do this, the DG cell built 220 kV circuit breakers are installed, gas-insulated switch, current and voltage transformers, high-layers and coupling capacitors.
Mining is engaged in the construction of Gremyachinskoe Company "EuroChem VolgaKaliy", which is part of the Mineral and Chemical Company "EuroChem". After entering the business in operation it will be one of the largest producers of potash fertilizers in Russia. Production of such products enhances the quality of the harvest, the culture growth, increased fruit vegetable oils, improve palatability and color fruits and vegetables. The total production of potash in the first phase will be 2.3 million tons per year.
