GTSOU installs solar systems on gas distribution stations to provide backup power supply

The Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) installed solar panels at gas distribution stations (GDS) to ensure a backup power supply and provide uninterrupted gas transportation to consumers.

“We planned to implement this project before the war, as one of the initiatives to optimise the consumption of energy resources. Today, when Ukraine’s power grids are suffering from constant enemy fire, it is necessary for gas distribution stations to have autonomous power supply options to perform their functions,” the CEO of GTSOU, Sergiy Makogon said.

The installed solar panels will provide electricity to the measuring systems and charge the battery during the daytime. At night, the systems will be powered by a battery.

The GTSOU uses the solar equipment that is already available in warehouses from suppliers in Ukraine. Specialists of the company carry out installation and commissioning of the equipment themselves.

The backup from solar systems had to be put in place due to significant damage to electricity networks in combat zones.
