On the eve of 5th International Conference "Development of Renewable Energy Sources in the Far East", the Japanese delegation of representatives of NEDO, Komaihaltec Inc., Mitsui & Co. began their stay in Yakutia with a visit to the village of Tiksi in Bulunsky ulus, where it is planned to build a windmill park with a capacity of 1 MW by the autumn of 2018. In 2019 it is planned to put the project into operation, reported the press service of the Ministry of Housing and Energy of Yakutia.
On June 20, the Japanese group, accompanied by First Deputy Minister of Housing and Utilities Nikolai Duraev, arrived in Tiksi. This time the head of Komaihaltec Inc. Amy Komai came to Tiksi herself.
On the first day the delegation visited the site of the future wind farm. Last year, Japanese engineers determined the optimal location for wind turbines, about two kilometers from the village. Meetings were also held with the head of the Bulun region and the management of the Bulun Electric Power Grids of Sakhaenergo, where technical issues of the project were discussed.
In the current year, it is planned to build a foundation for wind turbines. It is planned to deliver equipment in 2018. In addition, the Japanese side will deliver 3 diesel generators and energy storage.
"All installations will be made taking into account climatic features of the Yakut Arctic. Today we are talking about the construction of a wind farm with a capacity of 1 MW. While at the first stage it is planned to install three wind turbines," Nikolai Duraev noted.
Given the seasonality and complex scheme of transport logistics, Japanese investors are particularly interested in the issue of equipment delivery. In this regard, within the second day of the visit, a meeting was held with the management of the seaport of Tiksi.
The introduction of alternative energy sources will reduce the cost of diesel consumption.
Today, the Japanese delegation will participate in the conference on RES, the panel discussion West and East: best technologies and projects and a meeting with First Vice-Premier of the republic Aleksei Kolodeznikov.
