– Due to such an organisation of services we will be able to control the flow of electricity in whole Enea Operator from one place. Thus, in turn, will allow for a quicker and comprehensive reaction to any disruptions in the high-voltage grid. We will be also able to plan maintenance and modernisation works more flexibly on 110 kV grid in order to guarantee the reliability of electricity supply to our Customersadded Marek Szymankiewicz, vice-president of Enea Operator for grid infrastructure.

In the new organisation of Enea Operator’s traffic services, the operation of the power equipment, apart from PDC, will be also managed by Station Dispatch Divisions (SDD) and Regional Power Dispatches (RPD) as regards the medium- and low-voltage grids. Such a structure of traffic services is the company’s response to the continuous development of the distribution network and distributed generation connected to the grid and also to the growing requirements of our Customers.
