KRASNOYARSK, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Sunday's quake in Southern Siberia has not affected Tuva's electric power grid, the press service of MRSK Siberia (Interregional Distributive Grid Company of Siberia) - the largest distribution network operator in the Siberian Federal District, told Itar-Tass on Monday with reference to the results of the inspections of power grid facilities completed by Monday.
Nevertheless, power supply had been cut off for a brief period to nine settlements and part of the territory of the city of Kyzyl with the overall number of people affected approximately amounting to 10,000. Thanks to the efficient work of local energy workers it took no more than 20 minutes to resume power supply, the source said.
Immediately after the quake an operational headquarters was established to coordinate emergency inspections of energy facilities. Damages were found at one of the 35 inspected power substations. A decision on measures to eliminate the damages will be made in the shortest possible time, MRSK said.
No damages have been found at power grid facilities inspected in the Krasnoyarsk and Altai Territories, Khakassia, Buryatia, Tuva and in Kemerovo region.
MRSK supervises power supply to the republics of Buryatia, Tuva and Khakassia; Altai, Baikal and Krasnoyarsk Territories, Kemerovo and Omsk regions.
