Luneng Haixi 50 MW molten salt tower Concentrated Solar Power project to operate this June

Luneng Haixi 50 MW Molten Salt Tower CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) Project is a crucial part of 700 MW Luneng Haixi Geermu Multi-energy Complement Integration Optimization Pilot Project, which consists of 200 MW PV, 400 MW Wind Energy, 50 MW Concentrated Solar Power and 50 MW energy storage system. The 50 MW Concentrated Solar Power plant was started construction on June 30, 2017, and now entering construction peak period in spite of the freezing winter. It is expected to be operational in months this June 2019.

At that time, Luneng Haixi project will be the first large-scale commercial solar thermal power plant which is not amongst China 1st batch of Concentrated Solar Power demonstration projects, and predictably the 4th one after CGN Delingha 50 MW parabolic trough, Shouhang Dunhuang 100 MW molten salt tower, and SUPCON Delingha 50MW molten salt tower CSP projects.

A total number of 4,400 heliostats (138m² per) will be installed in the solar field covering an area of 610000m². The receiver tower will be 181.1 meters high, of which 147.4 meters are made up of reinforced concrete. Up to date, the 147.4m concrete tower has been completed, and more than 140 heliostats have been installed and commissioned.

In terms of the key equipment and service providers, China SEPCOIII Electric Power  Construction Co., Ltd., who is also the EPC contractor of Morocco NOORo 2&3 projects, work as the turnkey EPC for the project owner–Luneng Group. European leading CSP firms Abengoa and Fichtner act as the roles of Solar field technology provider and Owner’s Engineer respectively.

Other overseas companies including CMI, Flowserve, OHL, MICC, Emerson, BCB, Siemens provide some of the key products like molten salt pump and valve, heat tracing, DCS, steam turbine. Some components are manufactured by Chinese local companies, such as mirrors from Daming, steam generator from Hangzhou Boiler, hydraulics from Sichuan CRUN.
