Ten years ago the authorities promised if not absolutely to refuse seasonal shutdowns then to reduce their term to three-four days. About when it occurs, Business FM has asked the former mayor Yury Luzhkov and MOEK of the Photo: depositphotos.com Nearly ten years ago the Moscow authorities promised that terms of cutoff of hot water thanks to new technologies will be reduced to several days. However, since then citizens haven't noticed special changes. In 2009 the term of cutoff of hot water has decreased from three to two weeks. It was declared then by the Mayor of Moscow Yury Luzhkov. Then the head Kompleksa of municipal economy Pyotr Biryukov has promised that in several years duration of shutdowns will at all be reduced to three-four days. Old metal pipelines of heating systems will change on new, made with use of modern materials. However since then the term of shutdown was reduced slightly — up to ten days.Business of FM has contacted Yury Luzhkov. He has explained that nobody in his team called concrete terms therefore it is worth stocking up with patience as process of replacement of pipes long and difficult: Yury Luzhkov the second Mayor of Moscow "Repair needs to be done in turn and if at once all together, then it is necessary to change to a half of Moscow all these pipes.

All pipelines are laid with thermal insulation from polyurethane foam with the control system. Where such pipes are laid, hot water really could be cut off for couple of days or not to disconnect at all. But they are in the general system therefore it is necessary to disconnect all the same for ten days. It is necessary to make the pipeline system ready for the winter, the head of department for public relations of MOEK Dmitry Filatov:dmitry Filatov the head of department for public relations of MOEK "These explains 16 thousand kilometers of networks at us are broken into 594 stages. The stage means the site of a heating main which is taken out of service for ten-day term, and we carry out on them works: we give pressure, we dump pressure, we perform inspection and if necessary we make repairs of sites which or are damaged as a result of these hydraulic tests, or experts estimate them as potentially unreliable for work as winter. Their repairs are made, and they are again put in operation". In Moscow is at home where hot water wasn't cut off by several years in a row.
