New gas-fired boiler house was constructed for the uninterrupted heat supply of two major enterprises capital facilities – Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex and Zvezda FES.
Gas-fired boiler house construction was carried out in two stages. First construction stage was completed before the beginning of the heating season in autumn 2017.
