Potable water supply feasibility study for Summit Station, Greenland / Robert B. Haehnel, Margaret A. Knuth.

Title: Potable water supply feasibility study for Summit Station, Greenland / Robert B. Haehnel, Margaret A. Knuth.
Author(s): Haehnel, Robert B.
Knuth, Margaret A.
Date: 2011.
In: ERDC/CRREL Technical Report. (2011.), TR-11-4 (2011)
Abstract: Reviews potable water production methods potentially applicable at Summit Station. Using dating from Summit operations, determines 2 300 Btu/gal basic energy requirement for melting snow. Identifies means to reduce procedure's labour intensiveness with new design. Analyzes feasibility of using subsurface well in glacial ice (Rodwell), estimating sustained energy requirement of 30-40 000 Btu/hr, with initial 142 000 Btu/hr at startup. Such a Rodwell could provide at least 10 years of service before relocation. Specific energy requirement for this system ranges from 4100-7000 Btu/gal., or 1.8-3.0 times higher than currently used snow melt system. Rodwell is more energy efficient when designed to supply more water to support large population.
