Tomsk: a system of local boiler rooms will be created
Tomsk authorities are planning to create a system of local gas boilers in the city. Such a measure would avoid serious consequences in the event of an accident at the central heat source, a spokesman for the Tomsk administration said.
The city has developed a targeted gasification program for 2008-2011. According to this program, in Tomsk, instead of the existing centralized heating, more efficient heating from independent boilers will be organized. These boilers will be able to simultaneously produce both heat and electricity.
According to the press officer, local boiler houses will not only avoid serious consequences in the event of accidents at heat sources, but also enable residents to save on heating.
“In addition, the need for decentralization of heat and electricity supply is also relevant in connection with the construction of new microdistricts,” the representative of the city hall added.
At present, investors have already been found who are ready to build gas facilities in the districts of the city. For these purposes, the municipality has already reserved sites and is now looking for investors for the construction of a gas pipeline.
