Kiev heating and energy utility company receives 137 generators from USAID

MOSCOW. May 10 (Interfax) - The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has transferred 137 generators between 7 to 100 kW capacity worth about 40 million hryvni to the Kiev heating and energy utility company (KTE) through the Energy Security Project.

"The USAID Energy Security Project was among the first to start systemic deliveries of generators to Kiev," Ukrainian media reported with reference to the company's press release.

Thirty-eight of those generators ensured an uninterrupted operation of heat-generating equipment in 38 boiler houses in Kiev, it said.

Another 15 generators ensured the backup power supply to KTE's operations and dispatching facilities, enabling steady communication between the utility's units. The remaining 84 generators were distributed among the repair teams, which repaired about 40 damages of heat networks a day in all city districts during the heating season.
