Egis signs its first design contract of municipal heating facilities in Ukraine

In December 2016 Egis and the municipal district heating company of the City of Mykolaiv signed a contract for “Preparation of preliminary design and bidding documents for reconstruction of 32 boiler houses and 4 central heat substations”.

The project is part of the World Bank Program UHDEEP (Ukraine District Heating Energy Efficiency Project of USD 382 Million which aims at improving the energy efficiency and quality of service of selected Ukrainian District Heating companies, enhancing their financial viability and decreasing their CO2 emissions.  The investment for the Mykolaiv component amounts to USD 21,77 Million.

Egis will fulfill the following tasks:

-          Preparation (drafting) of design documents for the reconstruction of 32 boiler houses, with consideration for the complexity degree of every facility.

-          Preparation of design documents (at the technical-and-economic estimates stage) for the reconstruction of 4 central heat substations.

-          Preparation of bidding documents for further selection of the Contractor for the reconstruction of 32 boiler houses and 4 central heat substations.

The implementation of these components will contribute to the modernization of the district heating system of Mykolaiv which suffered a lack of investment during the past years, as in many other cities of Ukraine. Due to the recent increase of the gas tariffs in Ukraine, this project is also strategic in order to ensure energy savings and increase the efficiency of the municipal heat distribution.

After the implementation of technical assistance contracts to the municipal district heating companies of Lviv (2014-2018), and Lutsk (2016-2018), the assignment in Mykolaiv is the third contract of Egis in the district heating sector in Ukraine and demonstrates the experience of the Group and its experts for provision of technical services to the Ukrainian municipalities for the modernization of their facilities.
