Coal boiler room remains - Kozhemyako

Head of the Amur Region Oleg Kozhemyako and Director General of RAO Energy Systems of the East Sergei Tolstoguzov immediately after a meeting in the regional government left for the construction site of the second stage of the Blagoveshchenskaya CHPP, the governor's website reports.

After listening to a short report on the results achieved and plans, having assessed the construction work on site, Oleg Kozhemyako and Sergey Tolstoguzov answered questions from journalists.

“We held a meeting today, the purpose of which was to present our view on the prospective development of the Amur Region's energy sector as a part of the development of the energy system of the entire Far East,” said the general director of RAO Energy Systems of the East, “we considered the prospects for almost 25 years. One of the options for the next development was the possibility of building either a new CHPP or a boiler house that will operate in cogeneration mode. In order to ensure the energy security of the city, create several heat sources. It is much better when there are two or three basic sources that can mutually back up each other. When gas comes to the city, we will return to this issue, we will think about the development of gas generation for Blagoveshchensk. "

“But nobody will close the coal station,” added Oleg Kozhemyako. - About three million tons of coal are mined in the Amur region. Alternative sources are, first of all, the issue of ensuring the reliability of energy supply and heat supply to such a large city as Blagoveshchensk. The alternative is logical, but the coal-fired boiler house remains. "

When asked about the reconstruction and modernization of the first stage of the CHPP simultaneously with the construction of the second stage, Sergei Tolstoguzov answered: “During the construction of the second stage of the CHPP, new technological solutions are being taken - these are more automated processes, more environmentally friendly. In this regard, the current part will be "pulled up" to the standards that are being set today. This is an automation system, a fire and industrial safety system. This year, about 350 million rubles are allocated for these purposes. We will continue to work. The process may take two to three years. This is a normal course of upgrading equipment and making new technological solutions. "
