On March 25, Jinta ZhongGuang Solar «100MW Tower CSP + 600MW PV» project site leveling works started, which marked the full-scale construction phase of the project.
The preliminary development and construction of the project is progressing smoothly. In terms of engineering design, initial design and detailed geological survey have been completed, and the construction drawing is being designed, and heliostat columns testing, foundation excavation of tower and cleaning vehicle commissioning have been carried out on site. The purchasing by bidding of main equipment completed, such as steam turbine generator and solar concentrating and thermal collection system, and the tender procurement was almost completed for molten salt storage tanks, heat exchangers and the main building construction of the project.
At present, the project is in an orderly manner. The project construction will be carried out as planned, including temporary structures, foundations of tower，the main building, foundations of TESS，heliostat columns construction and heliostat assembly workshop. Cosin Solar will utilize its rich construction experience accumulated in tower CSP projects to escort this project construction，and ensure that the plant will be connected to the grid at full capacity before the end of December 2023.
The project is developed and constructed by Jinta ZhongGuang Solar Power Generation Co., Ltd., with a total installed capacity of 700MW. It adopts the configuration mode of «CSP +», including Tower CSP of 100MW and PV of 600MW, and the design electricity production is 1370 GWh/year. In this project, the 100MW CSP project adopts the molten salt tower CSP technology independently developed by Cosin Solar, installed with a 9-hour molten salt thermal storage system.
