#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In the northernmost village of the Krasnoyarsk region – Hatanga – a cold-water purification and disinfection station is to be commissioned by December, which will pass more than three thousand cubic meters of water per day.
Now 2.6 thousand people live in the village. There is an open water intake in Hatanga, and the water does not meet regulatory requirements. Water is taken from the river by a pumping station with a capacity of 20.16 thousand cubic meters per day. The pumping equipment is installed in the hold of a decommissioned dry-cargo barge, which is anchored 35 meters from the shore.
Yevgeny Afanasyev, Minister of Industry, Energy, Housing and Communal Services of the Krasnoyarsk region, visited the construction site. The grillages of the building have already been installed there, the floor modules have been laid, and the wall racks have been set up. According to the press service of the regional government, workers are now installing overlapping modules.
“The control room building is almost completely finished. Preparations are underway for laying a cable to connect the station to the power grid. It is planned to complete the construction of the buildings by the end of July and in the beginning of August to get down to the interior decoration of the premises. Then technological equipment, a diesel power plant, a transformer substation and a heating station will be installed. At the end, the contractor will carry out the improvement and install the fence of the station”, the statement says.
The station will be launched until December 2021 (in 2019 it was reported that the launch would take place earlier).
“Our main task is to create favorable living conditions for citizens both in the south of the region and in the Arctic. We have to build a cleaning station and put it into operation on time”, noted Evgeny Afanasyev.
Earlier we talked about the fact that reindeer husbandry in Hatanga is on the verge of extinction, but from next year the village will become a starting point for traveling to the North Pole.
