Katowice Heat Supply and Conservation Project

Katowice Heat Supply & Conservation Project

The objectives of the Katowice Heat Supply and Conservation Project are to: 1) enhance energy conservation and efficiency in the district heating sector; 2) extend the life of existing district heating assets through rehabilitation and introduction of modern technologies, thereby significantly reducing capital expenditures and operating and maintenance costs; and 3) reduce environmental pollution through investments in energy-efficient equipment and systems as well as by supporting a program to eliminate coal-fired heat-only boilers. The project will support implementation of the Government's ongoing energy sector restructuring program and it comprises: 1) an investment component consisting of investments in equipment to optimize the existing district heating system; and 2) technical assistance through consultancy services, studies and staff training. The project scope can be summarized as follows: a) reduction of water losses; b) improvement of water quality; c) reduction of heat losses; d) introduction of automation, controls and metering at the substation level; e) improvement of network monitoring; f) conversion of system control from fixed to variable flow; g) enhancement of system load dispatching capability; h) elimination of small heat-only boilers; i) a consumer installations pilot program; and j) technical assistance and training.
