KAZAKHSTAN’S NUR ALEM PAVILION
The total worldwide wind energy reserves are 8 times higher than the current consumption. The element, which has a colossal potential, became central at one of the expositions in Kazakhstan’s "Nur Alem" pavilion. Visitors were interested in the Spanish cylindrical wind turbine, which can provide electricity to an apartment building. In addition, the equipment is not only cost effective, but also environmentally friendly. The installation is still at the development stage.
MAKSUT KAIRGAZIN, TOUR GUIDE:
- This wind turbine is more silent. Usually, wind turbines create noise that scares away the birds and animals and annoys people. This turbine is absolutely silent and more environmentally friendly. It needs only the wind with the velocity of 1 meter per second to start power generation.
Pavilion visitors can also see expositions reflecting wind power potential. The section sparked great interest among the visitors
