SIMFEROPOL, August 6. /TASS/. The works to lay a power cable from the Krasnodar Territory in south Russia to Crimea along the bed of the Kerch Strait will start in August, Crimean Fuel and Energy Minister Sergey Yegorov told TASS on Thursday.
"Actual works will start already in August. The projects have long been ready," he said.
The first two out of four power bridge lines will be launched into operation on December 25, 2015. They will allow the supply of 400 MWt of electricity from mainland Russia to the Black Sea peninsula.
The power bridge to Crimea will connect the peninsula with the Russia’s united energy system.
