Due to the high level of contamination with elements of plutonium in the Chernobyl exclusion zone people won’t be able to live there for the next 24 thousands of years. Now the Ukrainian government is looking for the best option for the exploitation of this territory, said the Chairman of state Agency on exclusion Zone management Vitaliy Petruk, reports «gromadske».
According to him, after commissioning and transfer to the new Chernobyl sarcophagus, Ukraine will enter a new phase — the development of the most contaminated areas.
«The area we now divide into 2 parts: 1/3 closest to Chernobyl, the so-called «ten» — we want this area was a zone of the special industrial use. Now she is contaminated with transuranic elements, plutonium, half-life is 24 thousand years. And in fact, we are talking about the fact that 24 thousand years people will not be able to live a normal life and work», — he said.
According to Petruk, most likely will be build on the territory of the Park of solar electricity and more than 40 companies in the world have already expressed interest in such a project.
«There are areas in which we will never, for example, to plant potatoes, but at the same time, they are free: they are not quite overgrown forest, this former farmland, where there are bushes and there is also the network that are operable, which were built just under the capacity of Chernobyl — 4 gigawatts. We’re planning the construction of the Park solar energy. There is a great interest of Ukrainian companies, already operating solar power plants. And foreign: the Danes, the Germans, the Chinese,» — said Petruk.
In particular, interest was shown by the 40 companies, about 10 have already sent their engineers.
