-Armenia`s nuclear energy has no alternative

-Armenia`s nuclear energy has no alternative

ArmInfo. The nuclear energy  of Armenia has no alternative. A similar point of view is held by the  lecturer of the National Polytechnic University Martun Gevorgyan, who  gave the Armenian nuclear power plant for more than 40 years.

According to him, Armenia does not have carbon stocks, as there is  not enough water to create basic capacities. The sun, air and water  can act only as companion objects of generation. The nuclear power  plant is capable of producing electricity around the clock, with  one-time refueling, which allows ensuring the safety and independence  of the country's energy system. "Conversations about the possibility  of replacing renewable and alternative energy sources with nuclear  power plants are considered populist and short- sighted, these  conversations are most likely the result of post-Fukushima events,"  said the expert, adding that one of the main goals of the recently  established Veterans Union in Armenia energy is just the propagation  of a peaceful atom, the presentation of its benefits to the public.

 "Being the responsible secretary of the new Union, I, as a  specialist with experience in the field of emergency situations in  nuclear energy, intend to focus on the solution of this very task,"  Martun Gevorgyan stressed. He recalled that at one time, with his  participation at the ANPP, a group on emergency situations was  established, which in 2006 was transformed into a crisis center. Then  instructions were drawn up, a plan for the protection of personnel.  "I was in charge of this service for 12 years, during which 250  specialists were trained," the specialist said, adding that with his  participation, a similar center was difficult, but still created at  the Bushehr nuclear power plant, where he had to work for 4 years .  "I always tell my students about the need to strictly take into  account all safety measures at nuclear power plants." While  maintaining these measures, the nuclear power plant will respond with  gratitude, "the expert said. He reminded the critics of the nuclear  power plant about the position of Iran, which has already begun to  build a foundation pit for the second unit of the nuclear power  plant. "All in all, Iranians, who have huge reserves of oil and gas,  want to build 8 units, despite the availability of 17,000 MW of  electricity," Martun Gevorgyan stressed.

Recalling the terrible consequences of the early 1990s, when Armenia  closed the most powerful energy crisis after the closure of the  nuclear power plant, the expert called to remember the facts of his  own history. "We will not be clutching, but in 1995, for the first  time in the world, after 6.5 years of parking regime, we restarted  the nuclear power plant, thus overcoming the most acute energy  crisis." In this case, the then head of the station, Suren Azatyan,  who himself worked as a tractor, and we all pulled for them, "-  recalls Martun Gevorgyan.

Assessing the program implemented at the station to extend the life  of the second power unit, the expert emphasized its vital necessity,  since it will enable the republic to receive electricity for another  10 years at an affordable price. Martoun Gevorgyan, welcoming the  participation in the program of the company "Rusatom Service",  recalled that the Armenian nuclear power plant is built on Soviet  (Russian) technologies, it uses Russian standards, which are the most  stringent in the world. And fuel, as well as spare parts are supplied  from the Russian Federation. "We from this family did not go  anywhere." We were divided purely politically, but there were no  problems in the matter of nuclear energy, and I am sure that will  never arise. "The most important thing is that the station pays  constant attention to issues related to security. In addition, the  level of personnel is regularly maintained, classes are conducted on  the simulator.  Nuclear Power Plant - a specific structure that  requires special attention, "Martun Gevorgyan noted, while observing  at the same time that the ANPP  is the only unprofitable station in  the world, which, in his opinion, is nonsense. 

"The issue in the tariff for electricity from a station that is  extremely small: in the state of New York in the US, for example, the  tariff from the nuclear power plant is 14 cents." They built a  nuclear power plant, which the state did not accept because of the  absence of two evacuation routes. the tariff for solving this problem  was raised, "the expert said. He reminded that professionals working  at the ANPP are coming from shifts. Moreover, 90% of the station  personnel are students of the National Polytechnic University of  Armenia. There are also physicists who represent Yerevan State  University.

Continuing the theme of education, Martoun Gevorgyan drew attention  to the need to provide work for future specialists. "I presented the  data of several sensible guys to the personnel department of the  ANPP, where more than 700 people stand in line: They want to work,  but there is no place. With the construction of a new unit, this  problem will be solved.
