Emergency situation in Bishkek CHPP eliminated, chief says.

The emergency situation at the Bishkek combined heat and power plant is eliminated, CHPP Chairman Andrey Voropayev said during the meeting of the Bishkek city council's meeting on Tuesday.

The CHPP is operating in a regular mode today, he said.

"At the moment, there are 7 boiler units and 4 turbine units operating. The thermal load is about 500 Gcal per hour. Additionally, the third and fourth Chinese blocks were switched on," Voropayev said.

Fuel consumption is 7,500 tons per day and 2 boilers are there for a backup, he said.

Voropayev was appointed Chairman of the Bishkek CHPP by the Electric Stations JSC board of directors on February 2 following the breakdown of the power plant that occurred on January 26 leaving Bishkek inhabitants nearly without heating for 3 days, the coldest since 2012.
