Why the restoration of the North Crimean Canal will cost billions of dollars


Due to the drought in the Crimea, a critical situation has arisen with water, which threatens, including, an environmental catastrophe. This was announced on the air of Ukrainian ObozTV by the ex-head of the Council of Ministers of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Sergey Kunitsyn.


They (Russians - ed.) Are trying to transfer water from one reservoir to another, saying that "we have enough water." Not really enough. The city of Sevastopol can provide itself with water - there Chernorechenskoe reservoir of 65 million cubic meters. But once every 20 years there is a drought

- explained Kunitsyn.

He specified that the Chernorechensk reservoir is now only half full. But Sevastopol, Yalta, Alushta can receive water from mountain rivers and streams. As for Sudak, Feodosia, Kerch and the steppe Crimea, they cannot survive without the North Crimean canal. Water in the Crimea is only two months away. He remembered that once in the Crimea half of all rice was grown in Ukraine.

From the Kuban, they are physically unable to supply water. I know that such a project is being developed, but can you imagine what it is to pipe through the Kerch-Yenikalsky Canal?

- added Kunitsyn.

The former prime minister of the ARC recalled that Armyansk and Krasnoperekopsk account for 45% of the industrial production of the entire peninsula. And several years ago, an environmental disaster occurred at the Titan enterprise. The acid accumulator, where the waste enters, has dried up, since the water from the Dnieper served as a diluent for the contents to a safe consistency. So he does not exclude that this could happen again.

He emphasized that Russia does not need Kherson, but access to the Kakhovsky reservoir and locks in Tavriisk and Kakhovka is extremely important. Therefore, anything can happen. At the same time, it is not worth hoping that someone will help Ukraine and become "next to the bayonets."

In his opinion, now you can’t just take and open the locks - "and the water went to the Crimea." It is necessary to carry out large-scale restoration work in advance, which will last more than one month and will cost a lot of money.

One or two billion dollars are needed. There are up to a hundred irrigation facilities, 54 cascade pumping stations, which must supply this huge volume of water - billions of cubic meters. They have not been working for 6 years

- summed up Kunitsyn.

    It’s easier to spend these billions on desalination plants than to have any business with Ukraine.

    It’s better to lose something with smart people than with fools.

    Not tired of them yet?
    For 6 years now, every month Ukrainians have been authoritatively declaring that there are two months of water in the Crimea.

    Constantly desalinate Titanium waste is not an option. We need a different solution for the disposal of this waste. And if without the Dnieper water these dried wastes will be lifted by the wind into the atmosphere, then it is still not known where this wind will blow. Maybe, in the direction of Ukraine to bring acid residues, and then an environmental disaster will already be there. And then who will be to blame?

    Every month, they literally write in scientific news that they came up with a new technology for producing water.
    That is, they are full. Different. There would be a will ...

    As for the Titan waste lakes, why not reduce the evaporation? For example, like this:

    - Yes, already tired ...
    - The Germans over there ...- they even gathered expensive pipelines to fill the gas pipelines, "if the cook doesn't lie to us" ... - and here it’s just water ...
    - And in Russia they still can’t get water for Crimea ...
    - Personally, I have already written several times about desalination plants; that can run on windmills and solar panels ... - Why in the Netherlands can windmills produce so much energy, but in the Crimean steppes this is impossible ???
    - Well, then there is only one way out ... - from a "friendly" Turkey; or maybe from arid Iran; or maybe from "brotherly" Bulgaria; maybe from Romania ... - lay dozens of pipelines along the bottom of the Black Sea and import fresh water from there (buy for currency ... - barter is also possible in exchange for Russian gas and oil) ...
    - Well, what else remains ???
    - With our wise leadership, we will begin to import snow to Siberia soon ...

      Station Description:

      A floating nuclear power plant is designed to produce electrical and thermal energy. FNPP can also be used for desalination of sea water (estimated from 40 to 240 thousand cubic meters of fresh water per day).
      The floating power unit is designed to operate as part of a low-power nuclear power plant and provides, in nominal mode, the supply of 60 MW of electricity to the coastal networks and up to 50 Gcal / h of thermal energy for heating the heating water. The electric power supplied to the coastal network without the consumption of thermal energy by the coast is about 70 MW.

      Depend on the wind, put hundreds of windmills, combine with the power grid, ensure the synchronization of the network in phase, frequency. Isn’t it easier to do this thing, load and work for 20-40 years.

    There is enough water for drinking needs of the population. In theory. We need a complete replacement of water supply systems.
    For industrial enterprises - yes - there are problems.
    There is nothing to be done, agricultural enterprises will have to close for the most part.

    Do not worry so. Soon the pipes from the gas pipeline to Ukraine will be taken away for the water supply from the Don to the Crimea, and will go there through the Volga-Don canal. They say they have already begun to disassemble the gas pipeline ...

    It is necessary to build an atomic desalination plant as a mobile floating nuclear power plant, assemble it in the Crimea, if it is impossible to navigate the straits, and finish this bodyagi by installing it off the coast of Ukraine. Closer to their shore than ours. But, in neutral water, on the western side of the peninsula. Naturally, providing protection. I wonder if anyone would dare to swipe at her with a crazy offer of sabotage?

    - What is it ... here, many have come up against the use of some nuclear power plants (floating and land) ...
    - You are at least superficially familiar with the work of nuclear power plants (for this you do not even need to be an expert in the field of "peaceful atom") ...
    - Namely ...- how much fresh water is needed to cool the same working nuclear reactor ...

    Reactors are pressurized-water power reactors in which pressurized water is used as a moderator and coolant that removes the energy released in the reactor.

    - Yes, recycled water supply is used at the nuclear power plant, in which the cooling turbine condenser circulates in a closed circuit, cooling itself by evaporation in cooling towers ... - But in any case ...- you always need a huge amount of fresh water ...
    - An artificial lake (cooling pond) can also be used instead of cooling towers ...- again ...- with fresh water ... - Here is the crashed Chernobyl NPP used to cool water from the Pripyat River (from its branches) .. .
    - Well ...- who is here ... was going to build a nuclear power plant on the Crimean steppe hot from the hot sun ???
    - I.e. it turns out ...- first serve fresh water; and then it’s already possible to build nuclear power plants ... - Hahah ...
    - In the morning money (i.e. - fresh water); and in the evening chairs (i.e.-NPP) ... - Just business ...
    - The only question is ...- where to get water for this ...
