The Russian invasion of Ukraine has led to a massive destruction of Ukrainian infrastructure leaving people without access to for example basic electricity, heating and water. In 2022, DSIF through Nefco provided grant financing of DKK 34m for 20 new containerised boiler units to rebuild district heating in a Ukrainian city.
New district heating to 180,000 people
With a total capacity of 39 megawatts the new boilers will ensure district heating to more than 180,000 people, covering around 80 per cent of the population in the city where they are to be installed. The project also includes assembling of boilers, new piping and maintenance to ensure continued and reliable operations. DSIF also supported the rebuild of a boiler house in the same city.
The new boilers are more efficient and will on an annual basis reduce gas consumption by around 1.70 Mm3, saving approximately 3,400 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
