Amgalan Thermal Power Plant shuts down for four hours


Yesterday, the Amgalan Thermal Power Plant faced technical difficulties and stopped providing heat to apartments in the Officer’s Palace area and 15th and 16th micro-districts in Bayanzurkh District for four hours.
The power plant has three boilers, but it has been operating on one pilot boiler. The other two boilers are undergoing maintenance and aren’t yet operational. The boiler was operating normally at dawn on November 24, supplying 120 degrees Celsius water to distribution centers. However, the hot water suddenly turned off at 9:40 a.m. Soon after, residents started making complaints to local heat distribution centers. Amgalan Thermal Power Plant resumed operations at 1:00 p.m., supplying water at temperatures of 78 to 80 degrees Celsius.
General Engineer of Amgalan Thermal Power Plant Ch.Tsogtsaikhan explained the cause of the power plant’s malfunction. “The boiler’s pump can handle a certain amount of pressure. Its sensor weakened and the pump stopped working. This caused the boiler to shut down. We took necessary measures and restarted normal operations at 1:00 p.m.,” he said.
Several Bayanzurkh District residents expressed their dissatisfaction with the heat provision in calls to heat distribution centers. General Engineer Ch.Tsogtsaikhan commented in response, saying, “It was impossible to pump hot water at 120 degrees Celsius, as the boiler became temporarily inoperative. The temperature was increased to 100 degrees at around 5:00 p.m. We will continue to increase the temperature.”
