Deputy Chairman of Minsk Oblast Executive Committee Alexander Kruchanov noted that this is a significant event both for the Minsk region and for the residents of Myadel region. This facility is a part of the country's energy security. Four similar facilities have already been commissioned in Minsk region. In the future - seven more.


The opening of a block-modular boiler house using local types of fuel took place on the territory of the boiler house in the village of Vorontsy, with the transfer of main heating networks to Pi-pipes.

— We are always very sensitive to those facilities that make it possible to develop tasks for the country's energy security, Olga Prudnikova, Deputy Energy Minister, addressed those present. - Having on the site in the region various types of energy carriers, even with such a capacity, provide an opportunity for maneuver. See how the hydrocarbon market is storming now. Therefore, we will not stop there. And in the future, just such promising areas will be developed that will diversify our fuel balance.

According to the director of Myadel housing and communal services Vladimir Shabovich, the boiler house will reduce the consumption of imported natural gas by 4.49 million cubic meters per year. The capacity is 10 MW. Chip consumption per year - 33 thousand cubic meters.

This is a joint project of the Republic of Belarus and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development "Use of woody biomass for district heating" with the aim of replacing imported natural gas with local fuel and energy resources.

What is the new facility

  • a new stand-alone hot water boiler house on wood chips with mechanized fuel supply to each boiler;

  • canopy for preparation and storage of chips, with a volume of 2500 bulk sq. m;

  • stationary chipping complex with a capacity of 60-75 cubic meters per hour, and a loader for transporting chips..

The boiler house capacity is 10 MW. These are two boilers СН-400 Compact, with a capacity of 4 MW each, and one hot-water boiler СН-200 Compact, with a capacity of 2 MW, produced by Komkont JLLC, Gomel.

Fuel consumption (wood chips) per year will be about 33.000 sq. m.
