Capacity 100MW
Investment CNY 3 billion
Annual generating capacity 3500h
Solar field area 12, 300, 00 sq. m.(Over 12,000 heliostats; tower height: 263 meters)
Project Participants


Developer and investor: Beijing Shouhang IHW Resources Saving Technology Company Ltd (Shouhang)

In 2014, Shouhang started commercialized CSP project development and entered into scale industry stage. Shouhang devotes into systematic R&D of concentrator system, receiver, thermal energy storage system, heat exchange system and thermal electricity integration control system. By now, Shouhang successfully achieved small and middle size testing systems for tower, Parabolic Trough and dish CSP projects.

  Main participants and biding situation:

The main raw materials of the project are steel, aluminum product and glass, which are purchased from domestic suppliers by bidding. Core components as heliostat, control device, receiver and air cooling system are provided by Shouhang. Ensival Moret, Flowserve, GE, Siemens and Man are part of the key suppliers of the remaining equipment.
