The major supplier of natural gas in Yakutia - Sakhatransneftegaz - successfully tested alternative energy sources in the winter, which will replace expensive obsolete autonomous gas generators.
"The main gas pipeline is a very large and complex organism; the safety of the population depends on how it functions. And in a greater degree in the places where it is laid, there is no electricity network completely," said the head of the Production and Technical Communication Group of Company Aleksandr Mozherovsky.
Currently, severe winter tests at the gas-distributing station No.2 in the vicinity of Yakutsk have passed two innovative autonomous sources that use solar energy and natural gas.
According to gas specialists, the equipment is quite suitable for providing continuous monitoring at the main gas pipeline facilities. As Aleksandr Mozherovsky noted, special attention should be paid to the unique installation of EVOGRESS 1.0. of Skolkovo residents, which is several times cheaper and much more productive than its counterparts that use the energy of natural gas.
"The installation has withstood our cold winter in full autonomous mode, showing itself well. We hope that we can use all these power sources on the main gas pipeline," he stressed.
At Sakhatransneftegaz they emphasize that the engineers of the Linear Production Management of the Main Gas Pipelines are in a constant creative process in order to optimize the costs of operating gas pipelines.
"Transportation of natural gas is not just laid pipes, but a complex production process. Today the gas transportation system is undergoing its technological re-equipment. It is necessary to think in a modern way - to apply new technologies," said the head of the Linear Production Management of the Main Gas Pipelines Vladimir Zarovnyaev.
