Olzhas Bektenov checks execution of President's instruction to modernise CHPP in Petropavlovsk 

As part of his working trip to North Kazakhstan region, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Olzhas Bektenov got acquainted with the progress of modernisation of the communal and energy sector and development of road and transport infrastructure. 

During the visit to Petropavlovsk CHPP-2 of "Sevkazenergo" JSC attention was paid to the issue of quality and uninterrupted supply of heat energy to residents. Taking into account wear and tear of equipment of Petropavlovsk CHPP-2 by 57.3%, of North Kazakhstan Regional Power Plant - by 96.6%, of heat networks - by 77.5%, modernisation works are being carried out. In 2024, as part of investment and repair campaigns at Petropavlovsk CHPP-2, it is planned to perform works for 17.6 billion tenge. Until 2027, annual budget allocation of 4 billion tenge is planned for the construction of 739 kilometres of overhead lines and 240 substations.

"Ensuring the uninterrupted passage of the autumn-winter period and the proper level of supply of heat and electricity to the population is under special control. It is necessary to ensure timely and complete fulfilment of the planned repair works at the station, as well as to complete the construction of a new chimney by the end of this year. The Government will support the financing of the most important projects," Olzhas Bektenov emphasised. 

At the construction site of the overpass on Universalnaya Street in Petropavlovsk, Head of the Government was informed that due to the emergency condition of the only overpass to the central part of the city from the working settlement, last year construction of an additional parallel bridge was started. The new project will relieve the existing overpass built in 1961 and will allow to carry out its overhaul without traffic restrictions. In general, the opening of the new overpass will redirect the flow of large-size lorries, as well as provide a free flow of cars and buses on the current bridge.

Olzhas Bektenov emphasised that road and transport infrastructure is one of the priorities of the Government. This year alone, more than 39 billion tenge has been allocated in the region for the construction and repair of public roads of republican and local importance.
