Key City Development Issues

The government of Mongolia is in need of replacing its existing heating power facilities that are insufficient, outdated, and causing serious air pollution and consequently affecting people’s health in the city.

Details of Cooperation

The CDIA-supported pre-feasibility study focused on project assessment and conceptual design for the heating transmission facility that will connect the central heating power to the city’s heating distribution system, and water conveyance infrastructure for the plant’s operation.

When implemented, the projects are expected to facilitate the provision of about 504 Gigacalorie/hour of heat to meet the needs of at least 86,000 households of Bayanzurk District in eastern Ulaanbaatar. It will greatly contribute to the 2,546 Gcal/h heat requirement of the City by 2020. Further, at least 44,151 tons of raw coal consumption will be reduced from the discontinued use of polluting heat systems like stoves and heat-only boilers, which are presently key sources of domestic heat.

Expected Development Outcomes

Overall, the project is expected to improve the health and living conditions of residents, especially the poor whose access to safe, clean and reliable heating system has always been in the past years a matter of survival.
