THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE NOVOGRUDOK WIND POWER STATION WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE PROJECT ENTITLED "GREEN ECONOMY IN BELARUS»
On July 12 the official opening of the pilot project within the framework of the project entitled "Green Economy in Belarus» was held in Grabniki village, Novogrudok district. The wind power station with a 2.5 mw capacity was put into exploitation officially. The height of the tower is 100 m., the length of each blade is 48 m. and 100 m. in the diameter of rotation. The project was implemented with the financial support of the European Union. SLC “VYSOKIY ZAMOK” as the general contractor of the object took an active part in this project and executed the construction and installation work on the wind power station. Significantly, our company fulfilled construction and installation for 4 wind power stations (in Kmitianka, Grabniki, Baiky and Nevda villages) within the framework of “Novogrudok Wind Power Stations Project” and contributed to the development of alternative energy sources in Belarus.
Representatives of different organizations (such as Head of The European Union Delegation in Belarus and Ambassador Andrea Victorin, Ambassador of Poland, Ambassador of the Czech Republic, Deputy Ambassador of Italy, Deputy Chairman of the State Committee for Standardization and Director of the Department for Energy Efficiency Mikhail Malashenko, Director of The National Centre for the State ecological expertise and Advanced Training within the Ministry of natural resources and environmental protection of the Republic of Belarus Mikhail Simonukov, Сhairman of Novogrudok District Executive Committee Anatoly Markevich, representatives of SLC “VYSOKIY ZAMOK” and Engineering-consulting company ENECA) attended the Inaugural Ceremony.
Director of the Department for Energy Efficiency complimented Head of The European Union Delegation in Belarus Andrea Victorin for funding, representatives of the Ministry of natural resources and environmental protection for support in wind energy development in Novogrudok district. Mikhail Malashenko thanked all project participants, including our company “VYSOKIY ZAMOK”. Our specialists emphasize that the main difficulty in the installation of such facility is exploitation of special equipment such as a crane with load capacity of 750 t. and hook height 126 m. However, it is even more important to be experienced in this kind of installation work. That was one of the conditions when hiring the general contractor for installation and construction of Novogrudok wind power station because it is very accurate and responsible work. All parts of the wind power station were delivered in disassembled form to the construction site because of large-scale nature of the construction (the diameter of blades is 87-100 m. and the height of the towers is 80-100 m., besides each tower consists of 3-5 parts). Significantly, the weight of the assembled construction is about 300 t. It took us 550 м³ (1300 t.) of high-quality concrete mix to build the foundation for each of these giants. Company “VYSOKIY ZAMOK” successfully fulfilled his construction and installation tasks for Wind Power Station. All the work was performed qualitatively, on time and according to our obligations! That is why customers trust SLC “VYSOKIY ZAMOK” construction of many significant objects!
