The project to reconstruct the Surgutskaya-2 GRES sludge dump with the reclamation of two its sections was launched in 2018. Public hearings were held, and a positive conclusion of the state environmental expertise was obtained. In the fall of 2021, the oiled and fuel oiled waste section was completely dismantled, and the waste itself was taken away for disposal. The area has been graded, and already this year the site will be seeded with grass.
The final stage will include the reclamation of the acid washing basin. Last year, about 20% of the fencing dam of the basin was dismantled, and the waste was taken away for disposal and burial. During the summer of 2022, the section will be completely dismantled, the area will be graded and the natural slope will be restored, a layer of fertile soil will be deposited to restore the land capability, grass will be sown and then the reclamation project will be completed.
Reconstruction of the Surgutskaya-2 GRES sludge dump is yet another step forward to one of Unipro PJSC sustainable development goals: reducing the environmental impact.
