As explained by the Mayor of Kamianets-Podilskyi town Mykhailo Simashkevych: “Today we consider energetic and gas independence quite vital for Ukraine. For the recent years our town was working on in order to have its own boiler rooms, which would provide heating to the inhabitants of Kamianets-Podilskyi town, notwithstanding the situation with gas. This boiler room will operate on solid fuels and we will be concerned about decrease of gas consumption and to have the alternative.”

The Director of “Ukrainian Developer Group” LLC Oleh Yakovlev reported: “Kamianets-Podilskyi town was chosen as a place of implementing the pilot project for reason, as the utility services are well-developed here. By the end of the year the building of two more boiler rooms is in the works. We hope it will not be the end of our cooperation with Kamianets-Podilskyi town”.

The Director of Public Utility “Miskteplovodenergia” Valerii Hordiichuk demonstrated how the solid fuel boiler room operates.

The First Deputy Head of Khmelnytskyi Oblast State Administration Oleksandr Symchyshyn has expressed his hopes that the project will spread: “Today we have seen in Kamianets-Podilskyi town what the real energetic independence is. It is the pilot project and we will surely support it, as we don’t use Russian gas, but our Ukrainian straw. I hope that in the nearest future not only Kamianets-Podilskyi town will be energetically independent, but also the whole Khmelnytskyi oblast”.
