拖南极冰山回国 耗资高达数十亿

要闻 2019-07-12 15:01127未知admin

将冰山从南极洲附近的赫德岛拖到富查伊拉海岸,在长达10个月的旅途中预计会损失约30%的体积。

即使如此,余下的冰山仍会为阿联酋提供数百万升新鲜饮用水,还能通过释放湿冷空气形成天然雨云。

阿尔谢希希望这座冰山还能成为一个主要旅游景点。

除去试水工程所花费的6000万至8000万美元,最终的工程将耗资1亿至1.5亿美元。

由于极度干旱的气候,阿联酋是世界上最干旱的国家之一,也是全球最缺水的十个国家之一,每年降水还不到4英寸(100毫米)。

尽管如此,阿联酋消耗的水量却是全球平均水平的两倍多,这将使其在未来25年出现严重旱灾风险。

根据这家公司的数据,一座冰山平均含有超200亿加仑的水。

冰山融化需要很长的时间,因为80%的部分都在水面下,而水面上的白色冰层会反射太阳光,分散热量。

一旦冰山到达专门的处理厂,工人就会从冰山“开采”水资源来供水。

工人将从冰山上凿下一块块的冰,放入巨大的水箱中,进行过滤和处理。

阿尔谢希补充道:“这是世界上最纯净的水。”

他还声称,冰山的存在将为该地区提供更湿润的小气候,甚至可能带来降雨。

如果冰山成功运回,这一项目或许还能带动旅游业,人们会远道而来,观赏阿拉伯湾海岸边不同寻常的冰山。

Even so, the block will provide millions of litres of fresh drinking water to the Arab kingdom, as well as bringing natural rain clouds by releasing cool, damp air.

Alshehi hopes the block will also prove to be a major tourist attraction.

The final project will cost between $100million and $150million, in addition to the $60million to $80million spent on the test run.

The UAE is one of the most arid countries and one of the top 10 most water-scarce in the world, due to its extremely arid climate, which receives less than four inches (100 mm) of rainfall per year.

Despite that, it consumes more water than double the global national average putting the country at severe risk of droughts over the next 25 years.

An average iceberg contains more than 20 billion gallons of water, according to the company.

They take a long time to melt as 80 percent of their mass is underwater, while the white ice above reflects sunlight and deflects its heat.

Upon arrival at a specially constructed processing facility, workers will 'mine' the icebergs for their water supplies.

Blocks of ice will be chipped off and placed in giant tanks, before being filtered and processed.

'This is the purest water in the world', Mr Al Shehi added.

He also claims the iceberg's presence could provide a more moist micro-climate in the area, perhaps even prompting rainfall.

And the project may prove a boost for tourism if it proves a success, with people travelling to see the unusual sight of an iceberg off the coast of the Arabian Gulf.
