Luganskaya TPP has started to work on gas

Луганская ТЭС начала работать на газу

Lugansk thermal power plant switched from coal to gas

The station can operate both on coal and on gas, but coal is cheaper. TES provides electricity and heat to about one million consumers.

Lugansk thermal power plant had moved from coal to gas for further work. This was announced by Deputy Chairman of the Lugansk VOGUE Yury Klimenko on his page in Facebook on Tuesday, November 6.

“Today Lugansk thermal power plant had moved from coal to gas. Cchastinsky TPP transferred to the processing gas due to the inability of coal supply by railway transport on the territory of Russia. For this reason there is a corresponding decision of the government and Naftogaz. In parallel, we will “knock out” quota for the import of coal, as was previously the territory of the Russian Federation”, – he wrote.

While Klimenko said that the station can operate both on coal and on gas, but coal is cheaper. However, according to the official, the tariffs for heating and hot water supply for population will remain unchanged.

“Working to keep the situation”, – he concluded.

Recall the shortage of coal to the Luhansk TPP was announced at the end of October. It provides the light and heat around a million consumers.
