Three boiler facilities in the Murmansk Region will be converted to biofuel
The Murmansk Region has approved three facilities – existing boiler houses operating on coal and fuel oil – to be converted to biofuel (including pellets).
According to Governor Andrey Chibis’s directive, funds from a special treasury loan issued by the Federal Treasury will be mainly used to implement these measures.
According to the document, in 2023-2024 the heating system in the Drovyanoye neighborhood unit will be modernized with the conversion to biofuel instead of coal-fired thermal energy generation. In total, 47.8 million rubles will be allocated for the update, including a special treasury loan totaling over 37.8 million rubles, the region’s share of 382,000 rubles and extra-budgetary sources in the amount of over 9.5 million rubles.
Also, a diesel boiler house will be modernized in Drovyanoye in 2023-2024. The conversion to biofuel here will cost 28.3 million rubles, of which 22.4 million rubles will come from a special treasury loan, 5.6 million rubles from extra-budgetary sources, and 226,500 rubles from the region.
At the same time, the heat distribution system in the village at the 25th kilometer of the Monchegorsk-Olenya Railway will be upgraded from coal to biofuel. 26.7 million rubles will be allocated for this purpose, including 21.1 million rubles from a special treasury loan, 5.3 million rubles from extra-budgetary sources, and 213,000 rubles from the region.
Thus, over 102.8 million rubles will be spent in total to upgrade the three boiler facilities.
