East Kazakhstan region started preparing for this heating season 

The issue of preparing for this year’s heating season was discussed today at the meeting of East Kazakhstan regional akimat. The head of the region Danial Akhmetov instructed to prepare everything in time.

In general, the region plans to prepare 10 heat sources with a capacity of over 100 Gcal per hour, as well as 552 boiler houses with a capacity of below 100 Gcal per hour. Among those are the boiler house "Central" in Aygoz, purchased this year in the communal property. The town akimat promises that in the upcoming season the heat supply will be qualitative and most importantly uninterrupted and residents will not freeze. Repair work is to be completed by September, 1.

- The Ridder TPP poses a major difficulty. I instruct the first deputy to immediately create a special commission consisting of all leading specialists and deputies of the region, as well as representatives of the prosecutor's office for an objective analysis of the real situation. I know that today there is practically no repair and preparatory work at the TPP. This is a very important question regarding the vital functions of the town, - said Danial Akhmetov.

In addition, the head of the region instructed to create the necessary coal stock by September, 15. It should be noted that the need of the region for the winter period is 3,551,000 tons of coal.

- The coal price for the population should remain the same. I am instructing the akims of cities and regions within 10 days to deal with traders who supply coal. This relates in particular to Urjar and other distant areas, where last year the price per a ton was over 18,000 tenge. Special automobile columns must be formed so that individual monopolists do not raise the price, Danial Akhmetov said.

Akimats of cities and districts in conjunction with the branch offices are to develop a schedule of supply of coal for the population and public sector facilities. Starting from June, it should be delivered to social facilities.
