Modernization of heat supply systems in Novosibirsk in 2020



Modernization of heat supply systems in Novosibirsk in 2020

The Siberian Generating Company will replace 4.4 km of pipelines in Novosibirsk and repair 22 km of heating systems. The parameters of the repair campaign for 2020 will not be revised due to the pandemic.

Director of the Novosibirsk branch of SGK Andrei Kolmakov said that the project requires more than 40 billion rubles and new engineering solutions, since most of the city heat supply facilities are in an inappropriate state.

According to the company, about 62% of heating networks have been in operation for more than 25 years, which is more than the established term of their operation. This leads to new pipe defects and, as a result, to an increased number of outages.

“We don’t see any dangers for the repair and investment programs. There is no threat to disrupt the end of the heating season. All procurement procedures [in preparation for the repair campaign] have been carried out, contractors have been determined, contracts for the supply of materials and equipment have been signed or are being  signed, ” said Andrei Kolmakov.

The end of the heating season in Novosibirsk is expected on May 10. According to the head of the SGK branch, at 5 stations, 4 of which are located in Novosibirsk and 1 in the city of Kuybyshev, 850 people work daily who manage continuous production equipment. In addition, about 250 operational personnel carry out their activities in the heating network division and about 1 thousand employees work remotely.
