Activities related to modernizing the 330 kV Usatove – Adzhalyk overhead power transmission line are continued in the Pivdenna power system. As of now, subcontractors have completed preparatory activities related to the erection of supports’ foundations, and metal structures’ assembly works are going on.
We shall mention that the rehabilitation is performed in accordance with UKRENERGO’s investment program. The project envisages replacement of 12 metal line-related supports, which have been erected over 40 years ago.
Height of new supports is 40-50 meters, which increases the line’s overall dimensions and enhances its operation safety level in fire-hazardous locations.
Over 30 employees are involved in above activities, as well as specialized vehicles. Works are planned to be completed within one month.
Moreover, two angle-tension towers and four straight-line supports have been already replaced on this line earlier this year.
Implementing the package of measures is aimed at enhancing the reliability of energy transmission to consumers in the Southern Ukraine.
