Multiple Solar Chimneys on a Vessel Power Plant

We can build economical solar power plants by installing multiple vertical solar updraft chimneys on a wide airtight vessel. Solar mirrors will heat only vertical chimney pipes on vessel, hot air will rise up and replacement air will be sucked inside vessel through horizontal fan generator pipe tunnels, hence producing electricity. Since humidity of intake air will also partly condense because of vacuum which will develop at air intake tunnels, we can also obtain fresh water. We can manufacture up to 3 metres of diameter gray iron pipes by centrifugal casting or we can weld thick aluminium curved plates to build much larger chimney towers. To defend chimney pipes against corrosion we can use heat resistant primers or apply multilayer centrifugal casting pipe production method or we can install tiny resistant ceramic tiles inside pipes. We can install pipes on vessel in zigzag layout with middle pipes taller than front pipes to arrange more equal distribution of sunlight heat on pipes which is reflected by mirrors. The vessel which will carry vertical chimney pipes will be constructed as airtight with welding and it will have horizontal air intake pipe tunnels with fan electric generators installed one after other inside. We can place fog harvesting thin wire nets in front of tunnels to produce more water drops and to prevent unwanted objects from being vacuumed towards fan generator blades. Cooling due to vacuum is stated in ideal gas law P.V=n.R.T. We can build artificial fresh water springs in deserts by using air vacuuming power of vertical solar chimneys and air intake wind tunnels. To build fresh water springs on a desert sea shore hill, we open a narrow corridor through hill in North-South direction by using a cutter teeth installed thick and long wire rope or a specially designed chain of connected cutter metal parts. We can cut and open corridors by pulling thick cutter wire ropes in North and South directions continuously by bulldozers. We will pull and move our giant wire saw to North and South directions until cutting the corridor down to ground level. North-South direction corridor is our preference to minimize sunlight exposure period of corridor to keep it cool. Later we dig vertical chimney tunnel from ground level up to top of hill. We connect the middle section of corridor to vertical chimney tunnel through a horizontally dug wind passage tunnel. To dig vertical chimney tunnel, first, we dig a vertical hole from top of hill, down to ground level with oil well drilling equipment, we send a wire rope vertically from top drilled hole down until ground level and later we enlarge the chimney hole to a tunnel by moving and cutting soil/rocks by cutter parts installed on wire rope. Later we cover inside surfaces of vertical chimney tunnel with curved metal plates to make the chimney tunnel constructed like a large metal pipe. We build the vacuuming hot chimneys vessel on top of vertical air pipe tunnel. Air will be pulled inside horizontal air passage tunnel through dug corridor because of vacuum and air will be lifted up through vertical air tunnel and out from hot chimney pipes on vessel. Vacuum cooled air in dug corridors and air passage tunnels will condense their humidity. We will use fog harvesting nets put one after other in tunnels for better drop water production.
