Revival. Solar power station in Chernobyl
In hundred meters of the exploded fourth reactor of the CNPP have opened solar power station power in one megawatt. Ukraine has officially opened the first solar power station constructed in the Chernobyl exclusion zone practically opposite to a sarcophagus over the fourth power unit which has exploded in 1986. The western media note advantages of development of solar power in Chernobyl and appeal of Ukraine to investors in "green" branches of renewables. Корреспондент.net tells details. Power plant near a sarcophagus of the CNPP In Ukraine have started solar power station ​​ in the Chernobyl area - where there was the largest accident of "peaceful atom" in the history of mankind. Accident has happened on the Chernobyl NPP at night on April 26, 1986 when after the unsuccessful production experiment the personnel of the station have lost control over reaction, and the reactor has been completely destroyed. More than 100 thousand people have been evacuated from a 30-kilometer zone, more than 600 thousand people participated in recovery from the accident. Around the NPP has been created a so-called exclusion zone from which evacuated two cities - Pripyat and Chernobyl and also 74 villages. Today the increased radiation level is observed in a radius of 260 kilometers around Chernobyl. At the beginning of last year it was reported that the radiation background around a new arch of the Chernobyl NPP has decreased more than twice after a sliding of the new safe konfaynment. Chernobyl accident. Pripyat before and after the Constructed power plant has about 3,8 thousand solar panels located in the territory in 1,6 hectares around the fourth reactor of the Chernobyl NPP - in hundred meters from a sarcophagus which covers him. This station develops energy in one megawatt. She is enough to provide with electricity about two thousand apartments. Solar ES was constructed by the joint Ukrainian-German venture Solar Chernobyl Group. Have spent about one million euros for her. The company hopes to reach power in 100 megawatts until the end of 2019. The consortium Enerparc AG considering the possibility to establish in an exclusion zone of some more SES has acted as one of investors of the project. The second company - the Ukrainian Homeland. "We have plans for development of this project, for his expansion to about 100 MW. And we over it work with our partners", - the head of Enerparc AG Evgeny Varyagin has said. The solar station in the Chernobyl area uses reduced rates which guarantee determined price for the electric power. The Ukrainian authorities also considers the possibility of construction in an exclusion zone of several more solar and wind power plants. As solar energy will revive Chernobyl More than a half of the electric power in Ukraine is developed on nuclear power plants. For the first time since 2000 when the CNPP has finally been stopped, in this territory the electric power is made. "It is not just one more solar power station - it is the only station which is in 100 meters from the nuclear reactor, which взо
