MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. Consumers in Russia’s Crimean Federal District were getting full power supply as of 07:00, Moscow time, Tuesday, the Russian Energy Ministry reported.
According to the ministry, the 220 KW Kakhovskaya-Titan-Krasnoperekopsk high-voltage powerline was connected at 01:37 on December 8. The total power generation in Crimea, including power supply from the Russian and Ukrainian grids is 769 megawatts.
The power crossflows from Ukraine’s national power company Ukrenergo reached 104 megawatts.
A total of 2,677 reserve power sources with aggregate capacity 272.29 megawatts have been switched on for resuming electricity supply of socially important and infrastructure facilities. The work to connect consumers to electricity supply continues.
Crimea was receiving electricity from Ukraine’s Kherson region through four power transmission lines. However, all the powerlines were damaged as a result of actions of Ukrainian radicals on November 22 that disrupted the power supply.
Russian President Vladimir Putin launched on December 2 in the evening the first line of the power bridge to Crimea, which linked the peninsula to the mainland Krasnodar region.
