The President visited Chilanzar Heating Plant of the «Toshkent Issiklik Markazi» enterprise.
This complex was built in 1969. The boiler house has a capacity of 700 Gcal. The center provides heat energy to 921 apartment buildings and more than 100 social facilities.
In recent days, a low gas pressure has been observed due to the cold snap, which makes it difficult to generate a thermal energy at the required temperature.
The equipment and networks of Chilanzar Heating Plant have exhausted their resources. There are heat transfer losses.
In this regard, the necessary measures were discussed.
The President stressed the need to search for alternative sources of heat production, and to reduce the heat losses in wires and houses.
A proposal was approved to expand the generation of thermal energy by installing heating plants with a capacity of 2 megawatts in the districts of the city of Tashkent. One such installation will provide the heat to 1,340 households. Due to the low production costs, the price will not increase.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev paid an unscheduled visit to the nearby «Shirin» makhalla. Entering the apartment buildings, he spoke with residents, got acquainted with the conditions and asked about the state of the heat supply.
