For the heat supply of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky plan to use the thermal waters of "home volcanoes"

Thermal waters of "domestic volcanoes" will be used for heat supply to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and settlements of the Elizovsky region. Exploration of geothermal resources will begin in 2015, the press service of the regional administration said.

Next year, the Kamchatka Territory will start implementing a project to search for thermal groundwater in the area of ​​the Bezvodnoye Urochishche site. The site is located in the region of the Koryak-Avachinskaya group of volcanoes.

This project was included in the federal exploration program for 2015-2016; about 200 million rubles were allocated from the state treasury for its implementation. “Kamchatgeologia OJSC has approached our ministry with a request to support the project to find thermal waters in the Bezvodny tract. The government of the Kamchatka Territory prepared and sent a letter to the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation Sergey Donskoy with a request to consider the possibility of including this project in the exploration program for 2015-2016. Based on the results of a number of working meetings and conferences held in Moscow, this project has been included in the federal program, ”the Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Kamchatka Territory, Vasily Priydun, is quoted as saying.

The Bezvodnoye tract is located 20 km north-west of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and 8-10 km north-east of the city of Elizovo. “According to the research geotechnological center of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the average value of the electric and thermal potential of the Koryaksk-Avachinskaya group of volcanoes can be about 6 thousand Gcal / hour, which significantly exceeds the demand for thermal energy in the nearby cities of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Elizovo.

At present, the installed capacity of heat generating plants in the two largest settlements of the region is about 1,2 thousand Gcal / hour, "said Vasily Priidun. Geophysical surveys will start in 2015, and well drilling will begin in 2016. In the future, it is planned to build the Avacha geothermal station on this site, which will significantly reduce subsidies to the budget of the Kamchatka Territory for heat and electric energy.
