This allows to organize quality maintenance, scheduled repair, and finally to avoid the ceasing power supply to the consumers.

The works on cable lines diagnostics are held regularly in all branches of IDGC of Volga, PJSC, where they are in operation: Saratov Distribution Grids, Samara Distribution Grids, Mordovenergo, and Orenburgenergo. In addition, the cable lines in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Voronez were surveyed by experts of IDGC of Volga, PJSC.
