Cold days have already arrived in the Khabarovsk Territory, so everyone is looking forward to the start of the heating season. To ensure warmth and comfort, the power facilities of all power plants in the region should be in full readiness. The largest of them – Khabarovsk CHP-3 personally inspected the day before Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Mikhail Degtyarev.
Even the most informative reports of officials will not convince you of the well-being of the object as well as a personal visit in the company of specialized experts. Therefore, the head of the region prefers to see the guarantee of the inadmissibility of failures in the winter with his own eyes. So, the head of the region, Mikhail Degtyarev, together with the general director of JSC Far Eastern Generating Company Konstantin Ilkovsky, inspected the turbine shop and the repair site of turbine generator No. 3, where electrostatic precipitators are currently being changed. In addition, the block control panel for the units of the power unit was also included in the list of inspected objects.
In the same place, at the CHPP-3 site, the governor held an off-site meeting, where all the key issues of preparation for the autumn-winter period were raised. 27 billion rubles were allocated for successful work for the 2022-2023 season. Of these, five billion rubles were directed to fuel and energy facilities, and another 22 – to fuel for thermal power plants.
– Expenses of the entity for the preparation of housing and communal services amounted to more than 7 billion rubles. Of these, half is allocated for the supply of fuel for boiler houses and diesel power plants, – explained Mikhail Degtyarev.
For several years in a row, the winter season in the region was accompanied by emergencies, and it is possible to minimize their risk only by systematically and methodically dealing with infrastructure problems. So, at present, preparatory work is being completed at 422 boiler houses and more than 50 DPPs of the region. During the preparation period, 119 diesel generators, 63 kilometers of heating mains and about 700 transformer substations became objects of overhaul.
At the same time, the widespread replacement of wooden diesel power plants with modular units continues. In 2021, six new power facilities were put into operation. The indicator for 2022, according to the plans, is similar.
– In 2022, diesel power plants were updated in the villages named after Polina Osipenko, Udskoye, Tuguro-Chumikansky district and in Verkhnetambovsky, Komsomolsky district. By the end of the year, such modular devices will appear in the villages of Ozerpakh in the Nikolaev district, Katen and Solontsovy district named after Lazo, as well as in the village of Naumovka in the Khabarovsk district. The program was adopted by us in 2020 to avoid fires and other emergencies. We continue to invest a lot of money in energy, because we understand that without heat and electricity there will be neither quality life nor the economy, – summed up Degtyarev.
Modernization of fuel and energy facilities is reflected in the strategy of socio-economic development of the region. For residents, the stability of power supply is critical, and for enterprises, the availability of capacities. Without this, the emergence of new industries or the expansion of existing ones is impossible. For the first time in recent years, new energy facilities are being built. So, in a few years, the construction of a new CHPP-4 will be completed.
PJSC “RusHydro” is engaged in the construction of a natural gas power plant. The new facility, which will replace the oldest CHPP-1 in Khabarovsk, should be ready by 2025. Sanctions continue to put pressure on the life of the country, but it is possible to keep up with the schedules through the use of building materials and equipment of domestic production. The new facility will include four state-of-the-art gas turbine units to more flexibly respond to changes in energy demand.
