District heating sector visit KAZAKHSTAN

This event has past, see after event news here

In cooperation with Danish Consulate General in St. Petersburg, we invite you to join a Sector Visit to Kazakhstan. The visit will take place in the period 31 March to 4 April and will focus on the two main cities: Astana & Almaty

The event will be headed by the Danish Consul General Klaus Sørensen, and will run for two days in Astana and one day in Almaty with focus on the district heating sector.

Kazakhstan is an economy in transit and is still in the process of developing a favourable business environment. Kazakhstan has entered into a customs union with Russia and Belarus and is negotiating with the WTO. This has resulted in an increase in industrial output and a GDP growth of roughly 5% in 2009-2012. It has increased Kazakhstan’s international ranking in global competitiveness and attracted more than 8,000 foreign companies. The improved economic conditions combined with Kazakhstan’s favourable location with access to Europe and Asia, its growing middle class, makes it a very interesting country for Danish companies.

The main focus will be to meet relevant business partners in the district heating sector during round table meetings, and to be informed about the ongoing projects and discuss possibilities for cooperation with Danish companies. Apart from round table meetings, the Danish participating companies will have the possibility to present their solutions, and will during B-2-B meetings and networking activities get in close contact with the stakeholders in the Kazakh district heating sector.

By 2012, the system of District Heating in Kazakhstan is based on 40 heat & power stations with a combined production of heat and electricity (CHP). This type of heating systems are widespread in Kazakhstan, and operate in 29 cities.

The cities which use district heating systems service more than 70% of the population.

The existing combined heat and power (CHP) plants built in Kazakhstan are mainly from the period 1960-1980. District heating systems based on CHP have undergone the largest development in the North zone of Kazakhstan, but also to some extent in the southern and western part of Kasakhstan. The heat sources are mainly coal, natural gas and a small part of fuel oil (5%).
