Lviv Polytechnic National University received a batch of new generators from the Metropolis GZM, centered in Katowice, to ensure uninterrupted power supply of the University’s critical infrastructure.
The generators from the Republic of Poland were delivered to Lviv thanks to the efforts of Volodymyr Shepitchak and Yuriy Malinovskyi, the Center for the Collection of Humanitarian Aid.
– The largest of the generators weighs over a ton and has a power of 36.8 kW. It costs PLN 150,000. It will be located on Kniazia Romana Street where we have an old heating plant that powers two buildings of the University – 19th and 20th academic buildings. Other generators are smaller with a capacity of 5–6 kW, said Volodymyr Shepitchak.
Yurii Malynovsky emphasized on the cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness of the new generators, which are models of 2022.
– The help from our Polish partners will not end here. They are ready to help us further considering the needs that will arise. Poles really empathize with us in our troubles caused by the Russians and their invasion of Ukraine, added Volodymyr Shepitchak.
It is worth noting that the provision of new generators to the University was with the support of the municipal institution «City Institute», in particular Maksym Terletskyi, who is responsible for international cooperation.
Let’s remind you that this is not the first batch of generators that Polish benefactors have provided to the University. Recently, Lviv Polytechnic received from the AGH University of Science and Technology and three Polish private companies a batch of generators to ensure uninterrupted power supply of the university’s critical infrastructure, the largest generator weighing three tons. Earlier, the Opole University of Technology handed over to Lviv Polytechnic several generators, one of which weighs almost a ton.
