For heating water (for heating and hot water production) and steam production in the boilers, water from the city waterworks and the Danė River is used, which is supplied to the boilers after chemical treatment.
The water heated in the boilers is supplied by pumps to the city’s heating water supply networks. The temperature of the supplied heating water is determined according to the approved temperature graph, which is made after evaluating the outdoor air temperature and wind speed. In the consumer units, the cooled heating water enters the heating water return networks and is fed back to the boilers, so the process takes place in a closed cycle.
In steam boilers, water turns into steam of the required pressure and temperature and is supplied to city users. The condensate formed in the steam pipes is returned to the boiler room.
The main fuel for the company’s boilers are biofuel, natural gas, and fuel oil as a reserve.
Biofuel is purchased only at the Baltpool energy resource exchange and is delivered to the boiler plants by road transport.
Natural gas is supplied from the city’s trunk and distribution networks and enters the company’s gas regulation points.
Fuel oil is supplied by railway tanks and stored in 6 tanks in the Klaipėda district boiler plant.
