Today, on January 20, the governor of the Nikolaev area Alexey Garkusha on the press - conferences raised the question of providing the enterprises and the population of our area natural gas.
"At us in gas supply branch everything is good as we don't have it", - the governor then, having become serious joked, added that the area population practically didn't feel problems with supply of the Russian gas as it happened in other areas of Ukraine. "Besides we had a plan of transition for others, alternative, types of fuel", - the head of the regional state administration added.
Alexey Garkusha told that this critical stage was painless for us. For example, the plant in Olshanskom saved up earlier fuel stocks and therefore could be disconnected from gas supply without any losses for production though at Dawn — Mashproyekt plant gas consumption nevertheless should be reduced by 50%.
The governor declared that we have to look for ways of transition to other types of fuel, after all in Ukraine there are, for example, stocks of coal which will suffice for a long time. Under other types of fuel new technologies of a heat supply also have to be developed. "Our task - to pass to alternative types of heating", - Alexey Garkusha emphasized. He told that heads of the enterprises already repeatedly addressed to him with the offer on use of different types of fuel. In particular, it was a question of use as resources of collateral production - for example, straw.
Anyway, the governor emphasized, the similar decision for the state would be the best exit in the circumstances.
