"As far as costs of the branch office are concerned, they are unfortunately huge – dozens of million rubles. We did not manage to count the exact sum yet but it is a large amount of money," he said.
Alexander Suslov reminded that operability of the turbine generator was restored and at present it is located at a cold reserve but a permanent roof was not built by this time.
"It is planned that the installation will start in the middle of April," the director of the Mordovia branch office of the PJSC "T Plus" specified.
According to him, the enterprise will have to hold an examination of industrial safety of the building and to decide whether additional works are required, that is why now it is impossible to calculate a total sum of the damage.
According to company data, Penza power plants and heating networks of the group of companies "T Plus" operate in a normal mode. An electric load of thermal power plant No. 1 equals to 190 MW, the temperature of the coolant remains at the level of +75ºС and there are no risks that other problems connected with heat supply will emerge.
