The power engineers presented to the head of state the preparedness of the water boiler and briefed on the prospects of energy capacities development of the capital city.
The construction of the water boiler started in 2008. The commissioning works are planned to be completed by the 25th of September and further followed by introduction of the plant by the beginning of the heating season. The total cost of the project amounted to KZT 33 billion. The expected capacity of the new plant accounts for 480 gigacalories of heating energy per hour.
The water boiler will allow the increase of the heating quality, as well as the covering of the current heating deficit in the capital city and production of the heating energy reserves.
Moreover, the first stage of the thermal power plant-3 will be constructed in 2015, and construction of the second stage is planned to be completed in 2018.
Implementation of these projects on modernization and new construction will allow the provision of promising opportunities to increase the energy heating, commissioning of new facilities and generally development of the socio-economic sphere of the country.
