Alternative power engineering in an exclusion zone: reality or whim?

Alternative power engineering in an exclusion zone: reality or whim?

To make the Chernobyl zone industrially active, and also self-sustaining, creation in its territory of objects of alternative power engineering can. And it in plans of the government is. As the vice-prime minister, the head of the Regional Development Ministry Gennady Zubko reported, this idea will be presented at the international donor conference on April 25.

As the beginning of projects implementation reduction of borders of a zone from 30 to 10 kilometers around the CNPP, in the freed territories - will serve in a zone of a special industrial use - and new productions will be created.

For today there are already several signed memorandums with a number of the companies of construction of solar power plants in the Chernobyl zone. But, according to the head of the State agency on management of an exclusion zone Vitaly Petruk, everything stops imperfection of the Ukrainian legislation in respect of selection of the earth in a zone of the CNPP. The bill is already developed for settlement of the matter.

Meanwhile, experts assure that a problem not in a land allocation. According to the expert in power questions Sergey Dyachenko, it is practically possible to implement the project of solar generation in an exclusion zone, but matter in another - in regulation of a power supply system. "We aggravated a problem of a covering of peak loads. In this case the renewable, solar power only worsens a situation. Its standard of regulation is one and a half times higher, than at atomic. At the same time solar generation - an unstable source: that sun is, it is absent. Therefore in large volumes to start "sun" now it will not turn out. "Ukrenergo" said three years ago that we approached that border at which for stability of a power supply system we can quietly regulate solar and wind power engineering specialists. I think, it is a key problem, but not a land allocation. Our power is not able to digest additional (in huge volumes) the electric power - for example, in hundreds of MW. And if it is about tens of MW, then what sense these projects to discuss", - the expert noted.
