Kazakhstan introducing Expo-2017 technologies throughout the country

ASTANA (TCA) — At the meeting of the Government on August 7, Kazakh Energy Minister Kanat Bozumbayev reported on the implementation and use of projects demonstrated at the International Specialized Exhibition Expo-2017 held in Astana last year, the official website of the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan reported.

To date, 115 technologies have been selected for implementation. At the same time, 16 technologies are already in use, and by the end of 2018 another 20 will be introduced. According to Bozumbayev, nine technologies from Russia, the United States, China and Finland have been identified in the sphere of oil and gas to date.

According to the Ministry of Energy, akimats (state administrations) and Kazakh companies are working to introduce these technologies in accordance with approved road maps. At the first stage akimats introduced 16 technologies that reduce the use of traditional fuel, improve the urban environment, reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

Thus, the Akimat of Aktobe Region implemented six technologies: AN Bonus wind power stations (Germany) at the Zaru farm and Zhel Energo LLP, gearboxes of General Electric International Inc (USA), expanders for the oil and gas industry of General Electric International Inc. (USA), technology of hydraulic fracturing and simultaneous sandblasting perforations in the wells of the subsalt complex (China), automated group metering units for oil and gas production (China).

Meanwhile, akimats of Karaganda and North-Kazakhstan regions have introduced the “Smart bench” technology. Six smart benches are installed in Karaganda, four such benches are already functioning in Petropavlovsk. The Akimat of Kostanay Region has introduced the German technology — boiler equipment Vissmann. With the introduction of this technology, the quality of heat supply has improved and the productivity of thermal energy has increased.

Akimat of Kostanay Region also introduced Chinese technology of solar batteries. This technology was introduced in the city of Lisakovsk with an autonomous lighting network with a length of 1.7 km. Savings for electricity will be 1 million tenge per year. In the Naurzum and Denisov districts of the Kostanay region, Chinese technology of hybrid wind-solar power plant was introduced. This 4 kW technology was installed in the park to illuminate it.

Akimats of Pavlodar region and North Kazakhstan region introduced a German technology of long burning boilers. It is currently installed in 23 educational institutions in the Zhelezin district. The Akimat of the North Kazakhstan region installed 73 boilers at the facilities of the region. This technology allows reducing fuel consumption up to 2-fold. This technology is eight times more environmentally friendly compared to conventional boilers.

In addition, Akimat of North Kazakhstan Region in 2018 introduced the Polish technology of installation of biomass boilers. The advantages of this technology are the absence of ash and slag and harmful emissions into the atmosphere, as well as a two-fold decrease in coal consumption. At present, the akimat has installed 73 such boilers at state-run and business facilities.
