The Companys strategic goals to upgrade reliable UNEG operation include the following:

  1. Ensuring the preparedness of power transmission lines and UNEG equipment for reliable consumer power supply; provisions for the functioning of the wholesale electricity and capacity market, and for the parallel operation of the UNEG of Russia and foreign energy systems;
  2. Ensuring the UNEG reliability and efficiency due to the visibility and controllability of all grid elements;
  3. Developing the structure for operating and engineering control over UNEG facilities;
  4. Overcoming the tendency for the aging of power grids and power grid equipment via modernization of the above, the optimization of re-construction work and technical re-equipment, and by using extended service life of equipment;
  5. Upgrading operation processes, maintenance and repair; providing occupational training for operations and repair personnel, taking into account the implementation of new technologies and innovative equipment;
  6. Ensuring efficient UNEG operation due to the justified optimization of main electrical connection schemes and a reduction in areas occupied by facilities, as well as a decrease in auxiliary power consumption;
  7. Increasing the response and reducing the time required to eliminate accidents and other extraordinary conditions at UNEG facilities;
  8. Accomplishing the automation of UNEG substations, the implementation and development of advanced technical condition control systems, of automated systems for diagnostics and the monitoring of process equipment and of relay protection and emergency automatics;
  9. Developing a diagnostic system for UNEG facilities;
  10. Implementing the Unified Technical Policy in the PGC of the UNEG, to improve power supply reliability to end consumers, to cut capital invested in facilities, and to reduce costs associated with achieving the Companys strategic goals.
