Over 141 apartment houses in Krasnoyarsk were left without heating and hot water on Sunday night
A total of 141 apartment houses in which 6,500 people live, as well as two schools and a kindergarten in Krasnoyarsk were left without heating and hot water on Sunday night as a result of the rupture of a pipeline at a city steam power plant, the head of the city administration told a briefing on Monday. “All necessary measures are taken” to repair the pipeline, Petr Pimashkov said. Emergency headquarters have been set up. Meanwhile, temperatures in the city dropped to minus 22 degrees Celsius on Monday. The general director of the Krasnoyarskaya Generatsiya enterprise, Oleg Salkov, said it is impossible to fully liquidate the rupture because of masses of hot water at the site of the incident. He said specialists had found one of the sections where the steam pipeline ruptured, but it is believed one more section was damaged. He said up to five hours will be needed to resume the supply of hot water and restore heating after specialists detect the second rupture site. Specialists from the Siberian regional centre of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations say there is no need to evacuate people from their apartments as houses continue receiving heating, although the temperature was reduced. The incident was caused by the rupture in a steam conduit in the turbine department of the Krasnoyarsk steam power plant No 1.
