Power China Gonghe 50MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project was successfully connected to the grid on September 19, becoming the fourth large scale CSP project in China after CGN Delingha 50MW Trough Project, Shouhang Dunhuang 100MW MS Tower Plant, and SUPCON Delingha 50MW MS Tower Project. Up to date, the total installed capacity of large commercial CSP demonstration projects in China reaches 250MW.
With the total investment of RMB 1.222 billion, and 6 hours’ molten salt thermal electricity storage, the project expects an annual electricity generation of around 156.92GWh after completion.
Thanks to the strong support and commitment from the owner Power China, and the experience and expertise of SUPCON solar (Solar Field EPC Contractor), the project is able to be developed and constructed quite smoothly.
POWERCHNIA Gonghe 50MW CSP Project is one of the first 20 national CSP demonstration projects. It covers an area of 2.12 square kilometers, and takes nearly 30,000 surface 20 square meters heliostats, and a central Tower of 210 meters.
Located in Hainan State Ecological Solar Power Park of Qinghai Province, the project has an installed capacity of 50MW and a 6 hours molten salt heat storage system.
