Ukraine : Step to Energy Efficiency

Aug 10, 2018 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) --

The water industry is one of the most energy-intensive industries in Ukraine. Every year we pump about 3 billion cubic meters of excess water during floods and floods, water supplied to shallow regions to provide drinking water supply, industry, agriculture and other sectors of the economy, as well as surface run-offs to the cascade of Dniprovsky Reservoirs. Consumed electricity for this purpose, the State Agency of Water Supply costs almost 1 billion UAH. For the first time, we began to calculate the cost economy and look for ways to reduce electricity consumption.

With the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and with the help of the State Department of Energy Efficiency, we are launching a pilot implementation of 4 energy service contracts at the powerful pumping stations.

Energoservis is a promising mechanism that allows water management to gradually solve the main problems in hydrotechnical management of water resources, firstly - excessive energy consumption of pump equipment, secondly - technical wear and tear of equipment, the issue of which dates from 60-70 years.

Without the involvement of budgetary funding, the replacement of the equipment of state pumping stations will be carried out on more modern and energy efficient equipment of the best European producers.

It will start work from the new irrigation season of 2019. The cost of saving electricity will be about 20%. We see good prospects for the further introduction of the energy service in the water sector.
