The project was aimed at demonstrating of environmentally sound practices of handling OP stocks in two of Russia’s regions. The project entailed a detailed inventory of OPs, identification and reconstruction of central storage, repacking/collection of OPs and their transportation to the storage.
Improvement of water supply in Pskov and Velikie Luki, Pskov Region, Russia
The project was aimed at energy-saving activities at water utilities of Pskov and Velikie Luki cities. The project entailed procurement of new efficient water supply pumps to be installed in main pumping stations and a number of leakage detection equipment. The ‘before and after’ data on pressure and flow have been monitored and registered for analysis. Other project activities included designing a project website, number of leaflets and workshops for information dissemination.
Main project deliverable — a website for starting entrepreneurs
The policy of the municipality of Pskov is aimed at providing effective services compliant with the needs of its citizens. In order to achieve this goal, it’s important to focus on the internal organisation of the municipality of Pskov.
An example is the application procedure for starting entrepreneurs in Pskov. In order to start a business different permits have to be obtained at the Municipality.
Before the project applicants had to visit different offices spread out through the city, which was a time-consuming activity. Also, it was unclear which permits the starting entrepreneur needs, in which order and to which municipal department he or she should go to obtain them. In short, there was no clear information point to assist the applicant in obtaining the needed permits.
This Logo East project focused on the described situation as a pilot project aimed at strengthening the municipal organisation and stimulating internal cooperation between the departments involved in this project.
The Administration of Pskov wanted to use technological means for the communication with its citizens. Therefore, to provide a more effective and transparent application procedure, the procedure was digitalised and placed on a website. This website has been be created during this project.
Digitalising the application process implies changes in the working process of the different departments involved in the application procedure. Initiating these changes and handling its consequences for the municipal organisation formed an important part of this Logo East project.
Eastern Consulting provided full IT consultancy during digitalising the application process and development of the website for starting entrepreneurs. We planned, designed and built the project website, and trained the municipality staff responsible for work with entrepreneurs.
This is an ongoing project (this time, however, for a Russian client).
The project entails construction of biogas cogeneration plant(s) in the vicinity of a big poultry farm producing 120 tons of chicken manure daily. Location — Pskov, Russia. Our client intends to build greenhouses and timber drying facilities, and to use electricity and heat produced by cogeneration plant for those facilities.
The project is meant to be a pilot project dedicated to show the efficiency of renewable energy sources and their environmental benefits. There are four big poultry farms in Pskov region plus a number of pig and cattle productions — all having problems with utilization of slurry/manure.
The project now is in a feasibility study phase.
