17 May Team Armenia 2018
Our team members are from different provinces of Armenia. They have been attending the trainings offered by the labs for several years. Therefore, our team members have developed great skills in robotics particularly, and engineering generally.
Armenia has no proven reserves of oil or natural gas and currently we are using nuclear power plant, hydroelectric plant, solar, wind and other renewable energy plants. Armenia’s prospective in developing solar energy is rather positive and makes a minimum of 5 MW/1600 KW. The data is provided by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Armenia’s results are twice higher than European standards, where 1600 KW is the highest indicator. Gegharkunik, Goris, Sisian and Pushkino are the most favorable regions. Already 4 stations operate in Pushkino with the power of 2,64 MW. In addition, “Jermaghbyur” is a geothermal station with 150 MW that operates in Syunik.
In Goris town where Nona Telunts lives there is a hotel where they’ve installed the biggest vacuum solar water heater system in Armenia. This complex solution consists of 1900 vacuum tubes and was designed specifically for the customer, taking into account necessity of heating water not only for hotel kitchen and 45 rooms, but also a 200m3 pool. Another team member, Vahagn Zargaryan, has great skills in solar energy and he made 16v 5a currency solar panel.
