Muscovites may forget about annual summer cut-offs of hot water in four years, a spokeswoman for the Moscow United Energy Company (MOEK) responsible for hot water and heat supplies said on Thursday.
“MOEK has set a target to put an end to hot water cut-offs and it is quite possible that this can be achieved in summer of 2017,” she said.
Traditionally, Muscovites had to live without hot water three weeks per year. But this period was reduced to two weeks in 2010 and to 10 days from 2011 due to the introduction of new technologies and the installation of new pipes.
