Comment of the press service of OJSC Irkutskenergo concerning heat supply in Sayansk
On March 1, at 10.15 a.m. (local time) the Novo-Ziminskaya CHPP received a message from the dispatcher of the municipal unitary enterprise Sayansk Heat and Power Company (MUE SHPC) saying that a propagating crack had appeared in a heating water pipe forming part of the heating network owned by this municipal enterprise; the crack had appeared on the welding joint between the pipe and a pipe support near the transfer pumping station. In order to shut off and repair the damaged section of the pipeline, the Novo-Ziminskaya CHPP restricted the flow of water at the request of the dispatcher of MUE SHPC. Hot water was supplied to Sayansk via the return pipeline. The joint efforts of experts from the Novo-Ziminskaya CHPP and MUE SHPC to restore the supply of heat to Sayansk were well coordinated. By 6 p.m. the heating network started functioning in its normal mode again.
