In Moscow search for means for replacement of the gas cookers which have served term

Every third household gas cooker in capital it is maintained the terms much longer released to it. it threatens inhabitants of apartment houses with serious consequences - with alarm deputies of the Moscow municipal duma spoke at session of the commission on municipal economy.

I Will remind, today in a city it is installed gas more than 24 thousand residential buildings in which it is established one million 864 thousand gas cookers and almost 129 thousand flowing gas water heaters. Spent by employees of State Unitary Enterprise Moscow gas monitoring and diagnostics have shown that almost 35 percent, or 654 thousand units of gas cookers, and 8,8 thousand flowing gas water heaters need replacement on an old age as have served already more than 30 - 40 years that exceeds all specifications, and in two and more times. If to look at characteristics sheet of the similar device, service life at it should not exceed 10 - 15 years. Besides, a considerable part of the plates established in a city two - three ten years ago, have no gazkontrolja, gas preventing leak that is necessary under modern standards. To secure a situation in a city authorities of the capital gathered by means of the program on replacement of out-of-date devices. This document provided during 2006 - 2009 annually to change on 24 thousand gas cookers. But by March, 2010 it is replaced only 68 335 plates and 14 473 gas water heaters.

the Main reason in failure of the planned plans, according to the general director of State Unitary Enterprise Moscow gas Gasana Gasangadzhieva, consists in the new Housing code of the Russian Federation which has carried all questions of operation and service of these devices to responsibility of tenants and management companies. On a share of the specialised organisation on operation of plates what is Moscow gas now there was only diagnostics, operation of an intrahouse and main gas pipeline.

- Inhabitants to change the out-of-date technics do not hasten, - has explained Gasan Gasangadzhiev. - there Is the cheapest plate from 8 to 10 thousand roubles depending on model. Far not each Muscovite in a condition to spend such sum from the family budget.

the Chairman of the commission on municipal economy and the housing policy Stepan Orlov has noticed that it is necessary to connect to the decision of this problem of prefecture which have off-budget funds of development. And the main thing to address in the government of Moscow with the offer to develop the document according to which the city will allocate target grants for replacement of plates to needy and needy Muscovites. The reference in this respect to the mayor of Moscow will be directed in the near future.
