September 2, 2020, in Murmansk Andrey Chibis, Governor of the Murmansk Oblast, Vadim Vederchik, Managing Director of TGC-1 PJSC, and Stanislav Nazarov, General Director of 'Murmanskaya CHPP' JSC, signed a cooperation agreement.
The agreement aimed to improve the quality of utility services provided to consumers and to increase energy efficiency and reliability of heat supply networks of 'Murmanskaya CHPP' JSC.
In particular, when setting the market price for fuel below the tariff, 'Murmanskaya CHPP' JSC will allocate additional funds for replacing main heat supply networks. The parties will annually update the relevant programs for the period up to 2023 inclusive, providing for the annual renovation of heat supply networks in the amount of at least 5% of the total network length.
At the same time, measures on renovating heat supply networks will not entail an increase in tariffs for consumers: the work will be financed due to saving costs of fuel purchase under the corresponding market conditions.
Vadim Vederchik stated that 'Our key task is to increase the heat supply reliability and energy efficiency.The renovation program will primarily cover heat supply networks with a service life of more than 20 years.'
The Government of the Murmansk Oblast will promote measures to ensure the return of investment and to provide the governmental support in line with the applicable law.
'Murmanskaya CHPP' JSC serves 53.5 km main heat supply networks in Murmansk. When renovating heat supply networks, it uses modern robotic diagnostic systems and materials that meet the current requirements of thermal insulation and durability.
