The Tamanneftegas company has undertaken a series of activities aimed at preparing the social infrastructure and other facilities of the Taman Region for hosting sporting events. Among the measures taken were improvements in the social life of the local residents and technical measures aimed at public facilities.
The first step taken by Tamanneftegas in its set of corporate social activities was the installation of street lighting in the village of Volna. The new LED lights were installed throughout the village following their test runs on several streets, including Bugazskaya, Solnechnaya and Bosporskaya. Either more streets will be illuminated by the same type of lighting by the end of the year.
The Taman-Volna municipal road was in continued focus as Tamanneftegas maintained its efforts to rebuild a 2.1 km section of it. Over 11.5 thousand cubic meters of old pavement has already been removed and replaced with new layers consisting of modern construction mixtures. A large number of heavy construction equipment has been employed to make sure that works on the section of the municipal road are completed before the onset of winter and poor weather conditions.
On the social and public frontiers, Tamanneftegas has undertaken efforts to launch a series of open lessons for the children of various schools across the Taman Peninsula. Several experts and specialists of Tamanneftegas were employed to instruct children about fire safety and other hazard prevention and protection measures. Some lessons are focused on the ecological element and provide schoolchildren with the chance to discover the intricacies of the ecosystems existing in the Azov and Black Seas.
Tamanneftegas is pursuing its ongoing efforts at giving talented young people from the Taman Peninsula to achieve higher education in prestigious universities.
