Bad weather prevents getting fuel to the Kuril Islands
Kurilsk became the only city in the Sakhalin region, where the necessary supply of coal for the winter has not yet been delivered. Deliveries are hindered by bad weather, due to which the ship cannot enter the port of Iturup Island and unload fuel.
According to the press service of the regional government, in other settlements there is a necessary supply of fuel, heating was turned on throughout the region.
In total, for winter heating, Sakhalin annually needs 480 thousand tons of coal, but in the future, with the commissioning of gas boiler plants, this volume will decrease. Now their construction is going on in the Tymovsk urban district, their connection is planned for 2020 year. The builders also began the construction of a boiler plant in Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinsky.
