This is the first large-scale work on the line since commissioning in 1969, the modernization of the facility will enhance the system reliability of power supply residents, businesses and the city facilities.

Currently on the track power lines with a total length of over 34 km 13 bases are ready and 12 designs supports have been recollected. In late September, specialists will start placing the assembled poles, and then begin assembling the wire. Line protection against overvoltage and increase of its resistance to weather conditions in parallel with current-carrying wire is mounted ground wire with built-in fiber-optic communication line. It will perform two functions - protecting against lightning strikes, power facility and organizing the communications dispatch, data relay protection and emergency control systems, remote control and other technological information. The versatility of this cable will reduce labor costs in the reconstruction of the line and time of the work.
