98 photovoltaic power stations built in Taklimakan Desert!

Time: June 07, 2022

On June 2, the Tarim Oilfield Branch of PetroChina announced that Tarim Oilfield had officially built 98 photovoltaic power stations in the hinterland of the Taklimakan Desert, realizing green irrigation on desert roads and completely saying goodbye to the history of diesel engine power generation irrigating vegetation on both sides of desert roads.

Tarim Oilfield said that since January this year, Tarim Oilfield has further transformed the water wells that used to serve irrigation on the Taklimakan Desert Highway, and replaced the remaining 86 diesel-powered water source wells with solar panel power generation (in 2010, Tarim Oilfield built 12 pilot wells) Photovoltaic power generation irrigation demonstration station), after several months of hard work by the workers, 86 diesel generator water source wells were converted into solar energy system power generation. So far, more than 100 diesel generator water source wells on the desert road in Tarim Oilfield have achieved solar energy system power generation.

It is understood that the Taklimakan Desert Highway was built in 1995 with a total length of 566 kilometers. It is the longest graded highway running through the mobile desert in the world. In order to resist sandstorms, in 2006, Tarim Oilfield built a 436-kilometer-long ecological shelterbelt project along the highway. The 109 wells built were pumped and watered day and night, and the vegetation was deeply rooted in the desert. The ecological transformation of “advancing into the sand and retreating”.

Lei Ting, executive deputy manager of the new energy business department of Tarim Oilfield and secretary of the Party branch, said: "The zero-carbon demonstration project of desert highway in Tarim Oilfield has been completed, and the ecological protection forest of desert highway crossing the 'sea of ​​death' Taklimakan adopts photovoltaic power generation to achieve zero-carbon emissions across the board. , becoming my country's first zero-carbon desert road."

According to estimates, more than 400 kilometers of nearly 50,000 mu of ecological forests can absorb about 20,000 tons of carbon dioxide each year, and the negative carbon part can neutralize the carbon emissions of passing vehicles. Photovoltaic power stations reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 3,410 tons per year compared with diesel power generation.

Today, the average height of more than 400 kilometers of road shelterbelts is more than 2 meters, and the survival rate is as high as 85%. The vegetation stands on both sides of the desert road, and more than 100 species of birds have migrated and inhabited along this "green channel". The ecological environment of the desert hinterland is gradually formed.
