author: Elvira Latypova

Ufa Oil Refinery JSC took the first place in the contest announced by the Chief Directorate of the RF Ministry of Emergency Situations for Bashkortostan. This was a competition for the best maintenance of civil defence shelters as a part of the group of facilities accommodating from 150 to 600 people.

The contests consisted of two stages: the committee examined defence shelters in the cities and regions of the republic, and then the Chief Directorate of the RF MES for Bashkortostan decided on the best shelters of the region. Various parameters of readiness, such as leaktightness of a shelter, the quality of maintenance engineering, etc, were assessed according to various criteria.

According to the press service of ANK Bashneft, more than 2 thousand objects were presented for the contest.

Ufa Oil Refinery JSC has several defence shelters including a joint telecom cabin of an explosion-proof type and two air-raid shelters. There are control centres of isomerization and catalytic reforming units in the telecom cabin. In case any of these units is destroyed, the building will stay undamaged and there will not be victims among the workers of the cabin. The building was brought into service in 2008. Air-raid shelters are meant for protection of the plant workers in emergencies of piece and wartime.
