Har utvalg 3 fått feil informasjon?

with one comment

I behandlingen av Sima-Samnanger kraftlinjen ble det nedsatt fire utvalg for å få en ekstern vurdering av elementene som inngår i konsesjonssøknaden fra Statnett. Utvalg 3 har vurdert tidsaspektet ved bygging av kraftlinje og forsyningssikkerheten i BKK-området.

I kapittel 7.7 på side 85 i sin rapport omtaler utvalg 3 muligheten for å bruke Energiverk Mongstad som reservekraftverk.

På mellomlang sikt, det vil si ett til to år, er det teknisk mulig å installere en mindre dampturbin somutnytter varmen til kraftproduksjon. En slik dampturbin vil dermed tilby en alternativ mulighet til åkjøle ned turbinen dersom varmeuttaket på raffineriet er lite. Dette vil øke effekten ved anlegget med10 til 20 MW og åpner for en mer kontinuerlig drift av EVM på full effekt. I forhold til dagens planerbetyr dette en årlig økning i kapasitet på cirka 150 MW fram til EVM uansett vil være i full drift. Foren hel vinter kan dette være snakk om i størrelsesorden 400 GWh […]

Dampturbinen omtales her som en mulighet for å kunne utvide Mongstads kapasitet som reservekraftverk. Finurlig nok er det visstnok allerede installert en dampturbin på 35 MW på Mongstad som enten er oversett av utvalget, eller ikke informert om. Det må derfor stilles spørsmålstegn ved om utvalgets konklusjon er fattet på mangelfullt grunnlag, og dermed gir et for dystert bilde av forsyningssikkerheten for Bergens-regionen.

Heldigvis finnes det folk som Jørgen som fanger opp slike feil: http://jbhouge.blogspot.com/2011/02/reservekraft-i-bergen.html, dessverre oppfører Statnett seg som en KGB-institusjon og er særdeles tilbakeholdne med informasjon.

Hva er egentlig realitetene, og hvorfor er Mongstad uegnet som reservekraftverk? (Jmf. Statnett, pressemelding 25.11.2010)

La petit fête du Truc Vert

with one comment

After three and a half week in Lausanne I have now finally found a place to live. I’ve had a fantastic time couchsurfing these weeks, and I’ve met some great people and already made some good friends. It exactly these people I want to thank by throwing a small party on friday.

Le truc vert in Panama

As always when I travel, my name becomes a challenge, but Nathalie came up with a great trick for remembering it, Trygve is pronounced pretty much like truc vert (green thing), without the R-sound in the end.

Then of course the theme of the party must be: Le truc vert. There will be a prize best and most creative truc vert brought to the party. This can be anything from a green enviromentaly-friendly hug to a green apple. Alexe, my new flatmate, will be the independent and objective judge.

There will be served home-made pizza from around 20h, and there will also be some drinks, but you are also welcome to bring some yourself if you’d like more than a beer a two.

Favorite pictures from this summer

with one comment

I’m  back in Trondheim now after my summer vacation, and I was just looking through some of the pictures from this summer. I’ve decided to show some of them here as well.

Vilija

I visited my very good friend Vilija this summer in Lithuania. And this day is definitly one of the best memories from this summer. It was an amazing week.

Jeg var med Thea en tur til Kalhovd i sommer, og besøkte Ane som driver Fjellhest. Der fikk vi flere fantastiske turer, og kanskje sommerens laveste puls halvsovende med hodet liggende på en stor og varm islandshest.

In easter we had a study trip to Panama for almost three weeks with  my university class, and we did quite a bit of travelling around, and I managed to catch some moments. This one is just outside a small shop in the old city of Panama City.

Hitchhiking Panama

Its a secret

I did a lot of hitchhiking through Panama, and got some good shots. I can’t pick out any favorite pictures, but I really like this set. Click the picture to see a slideshow of 24 hours hitchhiking in Panama.

Who do you love the most?

leave a comment »

National campaing from Save the Children, NorwayI came across an unpublished draft today, when I went through the backend of my blog. I’ve written this down, but obviously haven’t known how to put it into context at the moment.

A conversation between a Red Cross Volunteer and a child in Smiley Club:

Vol: Who do you love the most?

Chl: My mother.

Vol: Why is it your mother you love the most?

Chl: Because when my father comes home he drinks and hits us.

This is something I experienced while in Armenia, it made quite an impression then and also now. What’s even more important to realize is that violence towards children isn’t just a problem in Armenia and developing countries. This is also happening in Norwegian homes.

As a fellow human, it is our duty to disturb when we see or suspect violence or abuse of children. The Norwegian Save the Children has a national campaign on this, and I hope you’ll look further into this.

reviving the blog

leave a comment »

After my return from Armenia, my blogging has been close to abscent and this blog has just been rusting away with old content. I’ve decided to get it back to life.

It needs a new title, and some new content. Just to get startet I renamed it “glimmer”, and that’s what I hope it’ll be. I hope to shed a glimmer of light on things I think is important, but I have no ambition of being a frequent or regular blogger.

Hiking to Kamtjønn

with 2 comments

This weekend me and three friends hiked in the south end of the mountain range Trollheimen in Norway. We used the NTNUI Koie “Kamtjønn”. The NTNU Student sports club (NTNUI) maintains 23 hiking cabins for the use of students.

It was a beutiful hike with fantastic weather. Some of the pictures are here or you can view all the pictures in the flickr slideshow.

Dear Georgia

with 7 comments

It is truly disturbing to watch the news about the armed conflict in Georgia. I just got off the phone with my dear friend Nino who is in T’bilisi. She was worried and she was currently trying to convince her little brother not to enlist.

David was in his home village when I talked with him 20 minutes ago, he was worried about his number of friends who were going to the front lines. Still he was in a very positive mood and hoping that the whole thing would be over in two or three days.

For me personally it was very good to get hold of at least these two friends of mine down there. There are many other that have not reached tonight, and I wish you all the best and as you I hope for a peaceful solution to this conflict in the very close future.

We played football with a group of kids in gudishvilis garden, and in the end I gave them my favorite Samfundet t-shirt to remember the strange norwegians who dropped by.
