Saint-Petersburg state polytechnic university is completing elaboration of the project of the wind diesel electric power station for needs of the enterprise «Yamalskiye Oleni» (Yamal reindeer). It is planned to build the station in the settlement Yar-Salye.
By the information given to a correspondent of IA «Sever-Press» in the press-service of the governor of Yamal, the location for building was chosen not occasionally. The specific wind potential in the district of the settlement Yar-Salye on the height 100 meters is one of the highest not only in Yamal but also in the whole country. Non-standard tasks were set before the designers: severe climate conditions, low temperature, icing, complicated ground, restricted transport accessibility of the settlement.
But the scientists found the necessary decision: it is planned to raise the foundation of the wind construction above the level of the ground in order to protect it from ground swelling and its chilling with circulating air. For support of the upper layer of ground it is planned to use thermal siphons. Systems of warming of vanes were designed. In extreme cases they can endure the temperature up to 60C degrees below zero.
It is expected that the future electric power station will serve during 20 years. During this time it will be possible to economize more than 3 million liters of diesel fuel – 700 casks per year. The specialists consider that the project will be repaid in 6 years.
