As a part of the program "Luminous Town", works on the reconstruction of the street lighting of five main streets in Khartsyzsk have been fulfilled with the support of KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT of Metinvest Group. 412 meters of the electrical cable have been replaced; more than 50 new lighting fixtures have been installed in the course of the works.
KHARTSYSK PIPE PLANT in its best traditions did the symbolic gift for the citizens by the Town Day. In the control room of the public utility "Gorsvet", the ceremony of putting into operation of a new system of the outdoor illumination has been carried out on the fifth of September. Mayor Valery Dubovoy and Pavel Uzbek, Acting Director General of KHARTSYZSK PIPE, took part in the ceremony.
The fact that the streets of Khartsyzsk became more luminous is the direct merit of the plant. After all, new lights appeared in Lenin Square, Manuilsky alley, Shevchenko boulevard, Sechenov and Liberty streets owing to the implementation of the outdoor lighting reconstruction program initiated and financed by the enterprise.
As mayor Valery Dubovoy put, the townwide program "Luminous Town" together with Metinvest and KHARTSYZSK PIPE in particular is being implemented for three consecutive years. Each time the plant allocates money to definite streets. It is also important that as a part of this project lighting fixtures are equipped with energy-saving light bulbs. It solves not only the problem of lighting but also the question of budgetary savings.
To see first-hand the real action of the project, the mayor and the head of the plant went downtown after the ceremonial commissioning of the outdoor lighting system.
"We started this program long ago, and it started with the districts adjacent to the plant. And today we bring it to the main streets of the town. After all, workers of KHARTSYZSK PIPE used to come back home from night shifts along these streets, thousands of our residents go here every day. We believe that thereby we make their life more comfortable and safe. I am sure that within the framework of the fruitful cooperation with the town, we realize many interesting and useful projects that will make life of the town dwellers better", Pavel Uzbek, Acting Director General of KHARTSYZSK PIPE said.
Investments of KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT for this project amounted to more than UAH 86 thou.
