Moldova is going to give the Dniester for Ukrainian hydroelectric power plants


On Tuesday January 12, Moldovan President Maia Sandu visited Kiev and met with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky. In particular, the parties discussed the possibility of Ukraine building new hydroelectric power plants on the Dniester, for which Chisinau will be able to purchase Ukrainian electricity at prices lower than in Russia.


However, not everyone within Moldova agrees with the position of the head of state. For example, Prime Minister Ion Chicu is convinced that it is impossible to build a hydroelectric power station before the corresponding European-funded environmental expertise. Kiku noted the connection between the expansion of the Novodnistrovsky knot, which was discussed at the Kiev meeting, with the territorial concessions of Moldova in favor of Ukraine.

The work of the PSP, located six kilometers from the Moldovan-Ukrainian border, at full capacity is possible only if Moldova provides 1,9 hectares of land for lease to Ukraine - in this case, the Ukrainian side will be able to raise the water level in the reservoir by 7-8 meters. But reaching full capacity of the station will negatively affect the ecosystem of the lower reaches of the Dniester due to the unstable water level in the river.

Meanwhile, environmentalists have repeatedly expressed concerns about the shallowing of the Dniester, associated with the indiscriminate construction of hydraulic structures by Ukrainians. In October last year, experts drew attention to the danger of a shortage of drinking water for the population of Moldova due to the start of operation of the 4th hydroelectric unit of the second stage of the Dniester PSPP in Ukraine.

I really hope that our delegation in Kiev did not promise to cede territory

- said Ion Chicu.

Now half of Moldova's needs for electricity is provided by the Moldavian state district power station located in Transnistria. This enterprise is part of the Russian Inter RAO UES and operates as a repeater, supplying electricity from Russia to Moldova, as well as Romania and Bulgaria.

    The state district power station as a "repeater" is strong ...

    What state district power plant? What export? Judging by the charts, it's time to set up the candle factory, who needs it there?
    Everything will be limited to joint begging for money in Europe, not de-communization of power plants.

        Pentagon shock

        In August 2016, a delegation of the United States of America Corps of Engineers (USACE) visited Ukraine to inspect the state of the Dnieper Cascade. It is a completely military organization and a federal agency of the US Army. It would be difficult to explain such a visit to a country bordering Russia, so it had to be legendary with an invitation from the Ukrainian side. In general, the presence of a Pentagon delegation of such specialization is a unique and scandalous case. This has not happened anywhere and never.

        However, diplomatic nuances in this case are irrelevant. The impressions of US military and dam experts are important. They were not reported to journalists, but they were dryly and formally outlined in a 175-page expert opinion.

        Do not think that the "Ukrainian side" in the person of President Poroshenko and Minister Omelyan has decided to tackle the issue of the cascade. No! They needed: a) a loan and b) "pictures for Putin" in the form of the American military on Ukrainian territory. But these same military men were worried about something completely different. The whole report boiled down to one thing - to abandon everything and urgently strengthen the dams!

        At six sites - in Kiev, Kanev, Kremenchug, Kamensky, Zaporozhye, Novokakhovka, that is, along the entire length of the Dnieper cascade, the condition of the dams and locks was assessed as critical. The US military recommended that urgently and urgently begin practical, emergency work. If Kiev does not do this, the conclusion says, then navigation on the Dnieper will completely stop in 2020, and the risk of man-made disasters will become uncontrollable and unpredictable.

        https://ukraina.ru/exclusive/20190313/1022952321.html

        Environmentalists are stirring up additional horror. So, the head of an independent international group of scientists on predicting the consequences of disasters, Vasily Kredo, claims that the Kiev reservoir, located above other similar structures, today is the most dangerous place on the planet from a technogenic point of view. Its dam, standing up the Dnieper from Kiev only 12 kilometers, according to Credo, is already worn out by 93%. Meanwhile, at the bottom of the reservoir with a total area of ​​922 square kilometers, there are up to 500 million tons of highly radioactive silty layers, which ended up there as a result of the world-famous accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

              Exactly. The accident at the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric power station is a fait accompli that took place and catastrophic consequences.
              Regarding Ukraine - "the critical condition of the dams", worn out and worn out, "navigation on the Dnieper will completely stop in 2020" and other scarecrows.
              That is, this is all - my grandmother wrote in two on the water with a pitchfork.
              By the way, has the navigation on the Dnieper stopped? 2020 has already ended.

                Was the engine room flooded? When thunder breaks out, the crest will not cross, it will be washed away with hundreds of thousands of fellows in reason. At least twice on the Dnieper, dams were torn down. We are waiting for the third and last. It's unavoidable.

                  Yes, yes, it is inevitable, like the victory of the world revolution, which your colleagues, predecessors, propa-gand-ists, promised 100 years ago.
                  Did the navigation on the Dnieper stop last year?

    discussed the possibility of Ukraine's construction of new hydroelectric power plants on the Dniester

    In addition, they could discuss the watering of the channels of Mars. What, the "non-brothers" have money?

    Empty is everything.
    Both Sandu and Zelenskiy understand about the construction of a hydroelectric power station on the Dniester in much the same way as pigs in oranges. Nobody will remember these talks-negotiations in a week.
    We also talked about the construction of the Chisinau-Kiev international highway, bypassing Transnistria. True, the proposed highway will be 60 kilometers longer than "through the separatists."
    Empty is everything.

    Ukraine has long lost the potential for the construction of hydroelectric power plants.
    All the creative and construction capacities will be enough only to cover the next channel like the Crimean one with concrete slabs.
    However, you can't forbid dreaming ..

    It looks like a carrot in front of a donkey's face.
    Apparently, Moldova proposes, they are beginning to discuss with Ukraine a "mega project", a solid positive.
    Only the construction of a hydroelectric power station requires a lot of money, a long construction period, with a long payback period.

    And as it turns out, the desire of Ukraine and Moldova is not enough, EU funding for environmental expertise is required. In order for the EU to finance it, the EU must set it itself a task and approve funding for some year.
    What is the EU for?

    True, in Georgia there are small hydropower projects, some projects have taken place. But there is a mountainous area, the energy efficiency of the "stream" is very high due to the large elevation differences. No giant dams required. The main costs are the purchase of power generating equipment, probably in the same EU.

    Moldova is going to give the Dniester for Ukrainian hydroelectric power plants

    - Only the Dniester ??? - And Prut ???

      After 30 years of conservation, on December 12, 2005, the 800 kW Snyatyn HPP was put into commercial operation on the Prut River near the town of Snyatyn, Ivano-Frankivsk region of Ukraine; it is estimated that it will generate 4 million kWh of electricity annually.
      Romania and Moldova in 2013 proposed a joint project worth 1 billion euros - the construction of 13 hydroelectric power plants on the Prut River. The cost of the project could double if a decision was made to open navigation on the river.
      A mini-hydroelectric power plant is being built in the upper reaches of the river. Around the site, there is a conflict between the Carpathian National Natural Park and the Vorokhtyansky Village Council. On November 18, 2015, the Economic Court of Ivano-Frankivsk region made a decision, according to which it refused the park's petition to return the land plot with an area of ​​0,476 hectares.

      The rod was given away for a long time.

          Offered in 2013. And they forgot, because nobody needs it, and it's easier to leave everything as it is.
          It will be the same with the Dniester, which, like Moldova, is going to give to someone there.

    They themselves do not have the funds and specialists for construction, and if Ukraine builds, they will have some percentage of the operation of the hydroelectric power station and the income of Ukraine.
