China has launched the country's first solar-tidal power plant

China's first hybrid power plant using alternative energy sources has been officially commissioned in Wenling City, Zhejiang Province.

The largest tidal power plant in the country is located here. Photovoltaic equipment for generating solar energy was installed on its territory, and the facility received the status of a hybrid. The complex station occupied an area of more than 130 hectares. The new project will help to ensure a more stable power supply, since the "solar" equipment does not work at night or, for example, in rainy weather, and the tidal energy received from the gravity of the Moon helps to ensure constant production.

Feng Shucheng, Executive Vice President of China Energy Group:

"This is a new way of integrated production of environmentally friendly energy by coordinating the use of sunlight and water. Based on available resources, the project effectively promotes innovation, which contributes to accelerating structural reforms in the energy sector and industrial modernization."

The annual capacity of the hybrid power plant will be more than 100 million kilowatt-hours. This will meet the annual electricity demand of about 30,000 urban households. In addition, the power plant will have a positive impact on the environment - now it will be possible to save about 31,000 tons of conventional coal annually and at the same time reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 84,000 tons per year.

Construction of a ring metro line has begun in Wuhan

Construction of the ring line of the subway has begun in Wuhan. The tunnel is about 60 kilometers long and will cross water bodies: two lakes and the Hanjiang and Yangtze rivers.

The planned depth of the tunnel varies significantly depending on the strength of the water pressure. Difficult geological conditions have added difficulties to the builders. The assembly of the tunneling shield is carried out in an accelerated mode, and for the reuse of drilling mud, a highly efficient system has been developed to separate it from the sludge – the crushed drilling product.

The ring metro line in Wuhan will run through seven districts of the city and connect 37 stations. It is expected that the project will be completed in 2024 and with the opening of a new transport route, traffic jams in the center will become less.


The Chinese academician devoted 40 years of his life to the study of glaciers

68-year-old academician of the Chinese Academy of SciencesYao Tandong is a pioneer of glacier research, he devoted 40 years of his life to studying cores from the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau – a variety of solid samples that are taken in the form of a cylindrical column.

Yao Tandong, Academician of the Tibetan Plateau Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences:

"When I first went to the Tibetan Plateau and saw the glaciers, I was amazed. Then I realized that I had to devote myself to the study of glaciers and fulfill a great scientific mission – to study the ecological changes of the plateau and propose a response plan from a scientific point of view."

Yao Tandong has no professional mountaineering training. Nevertheless, he led a team that visited almost all major glaciers on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and achieved a number of international-level results in the study of ice cores and global climate change. On May 4, the Yao expedition climbed to the top of Mount Everest and installed the world's highest automatic weather station at an altitude of about 8,800 meters above sea level.

Yao Tandong, Academician of the Tibetan Plateau Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences:

"The mission is not limited to the summit of Mount Everest. After we finish our research here, we will go to Mount Cho-Oyu in the Himalayas."

Three cylinders with samples of ice and snow, which the glaciologist received at the top of Mount Everest, are stored in the Ice Core Bank of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Lhasa.

The observation of the Amur tiger released into the wild has improved the national protection of this species

A three-year-old male wild Amur tiger wandered into a village in Heilongjiang Province in April last year, injuring a farmer and causing panic among residents. Employees of the State Administration of Forestry and Steppe Economy of the People's Republic of China caught the beast and named itWandashan No. 1 - in honor of the famous mountain range of this province. After the predator was released into the wild, it was detected more than 10 times by infrared cameras and a monitoring system in the Northeast National Park of Tigers and Leopards.

Gu Jiayin, researcher at the Center for the Study of Cats under the State Administration of Forestry and Steppe Economy of the People's Republic of China:

"According to the camera footage, it can be concluded that the tiger is healthy both physically and mentally. A collar with a GPS tracker does not affect his normal life. This means that the tiger was able to adapt to its natural habitat."

The data collected by scientists using an electronic collar can also be used by local residents to avoid collisions with the beast.

Gu Jiayin, Researcher at the Center for the Study of Cats under the State Administration of Forestry and Steppe Economy of the People's Republic of China:

"This tiger does not affect the ordinary life of people, as the animal actively avoids direct contact with humans and does not penetrate into residential areas."

Thanks to tracking and analysis of movementWangdashan No. 1, China has created a system for the rescue and subsequent release of wild Amur tigers and other large representatives of the feline family, and scientists have gained valuable experience in such studies. The Northeastern Tiger and Leopard National Park with an area of almost 15,000 square kilometers is located in the territories of Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces along the borders with Russia and the DPRK. This is the main habitat of Amur tigers and Far Eastern leopards in northeast China.
