Energy ministry: Belarusian power system is stable

MINSK, 14 November (BelTA) - The Belarusian power system is fully prepared for the heating season, Deputy Energy Minister Denis Moroz said in an interview on BelTA's YouTube channel.

According to Denis Moroz, the Belarusian power system is fully ready for the upcoming heating season. “We do not see any serious difficulties that could affect the Belarusian energy system. There is a reserve of furnace fuel oil at the amount of 300,000 tonnes (a reserve fuel). The required amount of peat has been produced. All the necessary contracts for natural gas supply have been signed. All the routine work on all the power equipment has been conducted. Repair work on heating networks has been done. The system is completely ready for the heating season,” he said.

The deputy minister added that in Europe energy prices had risen by 3-4 times both for the real sector and many households. “Despite the events unfolding around the Republic of Belarus, tariffs for electricity and heat for households have not been raised in 2022. This shows that the country's power system is working steadily, stably, and in the interests of the population,” Denis Moroz said.
