The CGN Solar Delingha 50MW parabolic trough CSP plant is one of China’s first  batch of demonstration CSP projects and leads the construction progress. The project has a total investment of 1.938 billion yuan and is equipped with 9 hours of molten salt heat storage. Once completed, CGN Solar Delingha 50MW parabolic trough CSP plant will be the first commercial parabolic trough project and the first operational demonstation CSP project in China.
