VLADIVOSTOK, January 11 (Itar-Tass) — The construction of a new substation, the Oceanarium, has been completed on the Russkiy (Russian) Island. The substation is designed to supply electric power to the facilities intended for the APEC summit which will be held here in September this year.
The substation is fitted out with the most up-to-date equipment that meets all requirements for reliable and safe operation, an official in the press service of the Far Eastern power company told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The building of the substation is part of the investment project aimed at establishing the island's electric power distribution network which is to be connected up to the power grid of the Primorsky (maritime)Territory and will permanently supply electricity to the summit facilities. Ten-km power transmission lines have been also built on the island in implementation of the project. The construction of yet another substation, the Kommunalnaya, in 2012 will be a concluding phase of the establishment of the electric power distribution netweork.
After all work is completed, the island will get a modern power network consisting of small power plants, substations and power transmission lines that will ensure a reliable supply of power to the Far Eastern Federal University and scientific insitutions of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, including the Primorsky oceanarium, and, subsequently, new residential neighbourhoods that will emerg on the island in several years' time.
The construction of APEC summit facilities has entered a final stage. On the first days of January, in particular, builders of the bridge across the Strait of Bosporus East achieved a notable objective: the huge pylons on the shores of the strait rose to the 300-metre mark, a record-high one in the world practice of bridgebuilding.
