Several DemoUkrainaDH projects are now under full implementation. The projects in the cities of Kamyanets-Podilskyi, Alexandria, Zhytomyr, Ivano-Frankivsk and Poltava will be completed before the start of the heating season 2015/2016. From then on these cities will profit from the energy efficiency and modernization measures realized.

The project in Kamyanets-Podilskyi includes installation of 22 individual heating substations in residential buildings and 3 individual district heating substations in public buildings supplied from a boiler house at Zhukova Street, together with installation of a new network distribution pump for variable flow in the boiler house. As a result a significant proportion of the heating system will be converted from 4-pipe system to 2-pipe system, with equipment for controlling the heat supply according to the real heat demand and tap water preparation in each individual building, which means that long waiting times for hot tap water will belong to the past.

In Alexandria a new high-efficiency 6,5 MW boiler has been installed in a central heating substation and is now operational. The new boiler house will supply heat to an area with six high-rise apartment buildings in the central parts of Alexandria, with a total of about 1800 apartments. Included in the project is also renovation of district heating pipelines and a small scale CHP for production of the electric energy needed for the demand of the boiler house. The installation of the pipelines will be completed well in advance of the start of the heating season 2015/2016.

The project in Zhytomyr is almost completed. The project includes installation of individual heating substations (IHS) in six residential buildings and in a kindergarten together with modernisation of a boiler house with new condensing boilers. The project aims to establish a 2-pipe district heating system in the entire heating area enabling a demand driven heat supply. For the kindergarten also a heat pump for provision of domestic hot water during summer is included. It is expected that the last district heating pipelines will be installed shortly and that all the components of the project will be operational by the start of the heating season.

The project in Ivano-Frankivsk includes decommissioning of one boiler house and connection of the heat load to another boiler house. Individual heating substations, 38 in total, will be introduced in the whole interconnected heating area. Project implementation is going on and project completion is expected at the beginning of the heating season.

The project in Poltava includes installation of new efficient boilers and introduction of individual heating substations in ten residential buildings together with reconstruction of the heating network with pre-insulated, flexible DH pipelines in a small district heating area. Project implementation is going on. Before the heating starts completion of the project is expected.
