GORNO-ALTAISK, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The government of the Republic of Tyva and the MRSK Holding (Interregional Distribution Grid Company) have signed an agreement on interaction in the period from 2012 through to 2015.
Head of the Republic Sholban Kara-ool and Director General of the Holding Nikolai Shvets put their signatures to the document on Monday, the press service of the Tyva government said.
The agreement is aimed at the development of the electricity generating infrastructure of the region, guarantee of its power security and stable economic development, the press service said, adding that the holding plans in the format of the agreement continue activities for the repair, modernisation and upgrading of the republic’s power grids.
The government of Tyva stated about its readiness to continue rendering assistance to the specialists of the Holding in the solution of the most pressing issues linked with the work of the power grids, the press service said.
Among other things, the regional authorities plan to improve the formalities for receipting non-ferrous scrap from the population, which will make it possible to cut the stealing of electro-technical equipment.
The agreement, in particular, envisages consolidation of the power grid’s assets on the basis of the Tyvaenergo company, which is a MRSK subsidiary operating under the MRSK Sibiri company.
Shvets is confident that this will make it possible to establish a unified centre of responsibility for the secure electricity supplies, decrease losses in the process of electricity transmission and spending for the power grid management.
The holding management said that they plan to hold maintenance at three out of five power substations, including the Chadanskaya and Ak-Dovurakskaya. The company will disburse two billion roubles (USD 1 = RUB 29.12) for the purpose. Initially, the upgrading of substations was planned to complete by 2016. However, it was decided to end works by 2014 due to the complicated situation. The company will also continue works for the instalment of modern electricity metering fiscal systems. The pilot projects, which were fulfilled in Tyva district, showed that electricity losses dropped from 42 percent to 6.5-7.0 percent.
