In Novokuznetsk, which is considered one of the most environmentally disadvantaged cities in Russia, construction of new gas networks has begun, which will allow coal-heated homes and businesses to be connected to gas supply.
Thus, in the Kuznetsk and Ordzhonikidze districts of the city, as part of the “Clean Air” federal project and general social gasification, the construction of three sections of gas networks has begun. In particular, 10.3 kilometres of gas networks will be carried out in the Kuznetsk district, which will make it possible to provide more than 440 private residential buildings with this resource, and 15 kilometres of networks in the Ordzhonikidze district will allow connecting more than 470 residential buildings.
As specified, a high-pressure gas pipeline of the first category with a total length of 5.1 kilometres is necessary for the further construction of a medium and low-pressure gas network in the Ordzhonikidze district. It is noted that not only private homes, but also social facilities and enterprises will be able to receive gas from it. For construction and installation works it is planned to allocate over 352 million rubles.
