World Bank to Help Mod­ern­ize Heat Sys­tem in Bukhara

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - ECONOMY AND TRANSPORT -

A del­e­ga­tion led by the head of the World Bank Of­fice in Uzbek­istan vis­ited Bukhara, where the pre­sen­ta­tion of the project on the re­con­struc­tion of the heat en­ergy sys­tem by the Bukhoroen­er­go­markaz joint stock com­pany based on mod­ern re­quire­ments took place.

The cost of the project, ap­proved by the World Bank Board of Di­rec­tors and funded on con­ces­sional terms at the ex­pense of the In­ter­na­tional De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion, is more than $ 14 mil­lion. Ow­ing to these funds, a large-scale tech­no­log­i­cal up­date will be car­ried out in the joint-stock com­pany Bukhoroen­er­go­markaz.

Ini­tially, the heat sup­ply will be trans­ferred from an open sys­tem to a closed one. In­di­vid­ual heat points will also be built in 198 multi-storey res­i­den­tial build­ings and at 33 so­cial fa­cil­i­ties.

“As a re­sult of the project, nat­u­ral gas, elec­tric­ity, and drink­ing wa­ter worth 4.7 bil­lion soums per year will be saved. The in­tro­duc­tion of mod­ern tech­nolo­gies will make it pos­si­ble to re­duce the cost of heat pro­duc­tion by 30%. Most im­por­tantly, heat losses dur­ing its trans­porta­tion will be halved, and by re­duc­ing en­ergy con­sump­tion, emis­sions of poi­sonous gas, an­hy­drite car­bon­ate, will de­crease by 5.2 thou­sand tons per year,” said Bukhoroen­er­go­markaz JSC chair­man An­var Ko­rayev.

As it be­came known, due to mod­ern­iza­tion, the ser­vice life of heat­ing net­works and heat sup­ply sys­tems in high-rise res­i­den­tial build­ings will in­crease by 50 years. Due to the in­stal­la­tion of in­di­vid­ual heat points, the process of heat sup­ply in high-rise res­i­den­tial build­ings and at so­cial fa­cil­i­ties will be au­to­mat­i­cally con­trolled tak­ing into ac­count the am­bi­ent tem­per­a­ture.

The project is ex­pected to be­gin in the sec­ond quar­ter of 2019 and be com­pleted in stages in 2021.
