The meeting participants considered the issues of modernization of the city’s outdated heating systems, as well as their transfer to a pricing model based on the “alternative boiler house” principle.
Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak held a working meeting on the modernization of the heat supply system of the city of Tver. The meeting was attended by the Governor of the Tver Region Igor Rudenya and the General Director of Gazprom Energoholding Denis Fyodorov.
The meeting participants discussed the current issues of the city’s thermal economy during the beginning of the autumn-winter period. Special attention was paid to the current unsatisfactory state of the thermal economy and plans for its modernization.
It was noted that at the moment most of the city equipment of the CHP and heating networks, which are managed by the local LLC Tverskaya Generatsiya – 3 CHPs, a total of 18 boiler houses and about 482 km of networks – have exhausted their resource and are in an unsatisfactory condition; heat transfer reached 29% of the supply to the grid with a standard value of 19%. Earlier, when considering the issue by the specialized Ministry of Construction of Russia and the Ministry of Energy of Russia, it was noted that the modernization of thermal systems should be carried out while maintaining the operation of the existing CHPPs.
“The heat supply system of the city is in an unsatisfactory state, there are frequent accidents, the enterprise is unprofitable. In accordance with the instruction of the President, the Government of Russia is now considering the issue of modernizing the heat supply systems of Tver, ”noted Alexander Novak during the meeting.
Thus, on behalf of President Vladimir Putin, the Russian Government, together with PJSC Gazprom, is currently considering the issue of transferring the heating network property to the operational management of OOO Gazprom energoholding.
Following the meeting, the Deputy Prime Minister instructed the Ministry of Construction of Russia, together with the Ministry of Energy of Russia, the Government of the Tver Region and OOO Gazprom Energoholding, to create a working group and submit to the Government of the Russian Federation for approval an agreed schedule for the implementation of measures for the modernization and operation of the heat supply system in the city of Tver.
On behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister, in particular, comparative options for calculating the cost of modernizing the existing heat supply system will be prepared, as well as the issue of transition of the city of Tver to a pricing model based on the principle of “alternative boiler house” to potentially increase the volume of investments for the modernization of the heat supply system.
