Nagpur: With temperatures expected to rise later this month, Spanco Nagpur Discom Limited (SNDL), the distribution franchisee, undertook the pre-summer activities on priority basis. The measures include trimming of overhanging trees, restringing of overhead lines, maintenance of transformers and other infrastructure, replacement of pin, disc and shackle insulators wherever needed in addition to tightening of LT and HT lines jumpers. SNDL is also providing spacers at such locations where it is observed missing or damaged. At few other places where door-panels of feeder pillars were missing, have been restored to original position.
Since the temperatures were fairly supportive towards the beginning of this year, SNDL set out early with its initiatives to provide desired uptime and qualitative power supply to its consumers during upcoming summers. Thus, extensive and time-taking activities were undertaken during regular maintenance shutdown on Wednesdays and during informed outages in a planned and phase-wise manner.
SNDL further said that teams from various departments such as O & M, Customer Care Centre and Call Centre have been imparted special training to handle consumer requirements with patience in the approaching season. They have also been instructed to stay on high-alert during this period, to avoid any inconvenience to consumers. The franchisee has further requested the citizens to cooperate in completion of these initiatives and thus help the franchisee provide them efficient services. Any specific requirements can be communicated to nearby SNDL office or on its toll-free number 1800-313-9600.
