OREANDA-NEWS. IDGC of Centre summed up the results of work on connection to electric grids for seven months of 2017. In January-July, the company’s specialists performed 21.9 thousand grid connection contracts. The total connected capacity under the executed contracts was 455 MW.

The total revenue of IDGC of Centre from the grid connection for seven months was 685 million rubles without VAT. Such good financial performance was greatly facilitated by the company’s successful implementation of grid connection contracts under large-scale and significant facilities. Among them there is a poultry meat processing workshop of LLC "Belaya Ptitsa-Belgorod" and a seed plant of OJSC PMK "Soyuzpartfyumprom" in the Belgorod region, a complex for preparation and storage of seed stock with a capacity of up to 20 thousand tons per year of LLC "Semenye Global Technologies" and a poultry farm for turkey breeding with the capacity of 50,000 heads per year of LLC "Krivets-Ptitsa" in the Lipetsk region, a meat processing plant of LLC "Filye Properties" (a subsidiary of the company "Auchan") in the Tambov region with a capacity of about 70 thousand tons of meat per year, a facility for growing mushrooms of LLC "Mushroom Rainbow" in the Kursk region, with its designed capacity of up to 12 thousand tons per year, the Centre for Space Communication "Dubna" in the Tver region. A number of large housing construction projects, social and municipal infrastructure facilities were also connected to the grid.

In addition, during this period the company completed a large-scale project to create an electric grid infrastructure for the largest enterprises in the Central Federal District for growing and processing poultry meat, established on the basis of LLC "Tambov Turkey" and OJSC "Tokarevskaya Poultry Plant". The work was carried out within the framework of the concession agreement between IDGC of Centre and the administration of the Tambov region, which became the first example of public-private partnership in the power grid complex, signed in 2015. To supply the Tambov turkey facility with a production capacity of 50,000 tons of turkey meat per year, the power company constructed 180 km of 6-10 kV power lines and 19 10/0.4 kV transformer substations with a total capacity of 33.7 MVA. The main part of the facilities has already been connected to the grid, one site - fattening site No. 9 - will be connected as the construction is completed, planned for the end of 2017. To ensure the delivery by the Tokarevskaya poultry plant of 150 thousand tons of poultry meat IDGC of Centre put into operation the 110/10 kV substation "Factory" in 2016.

Fulfilling its obligations on timely connection to grids of large industrial facilities and production sites, housing, small and medium-sized businesses, IDGC of Centre makes a significant contribution to the social and economic development of the regions of the Central Federal District.
