As one of China first batch of 20 demonstration Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) projects, Shouhang Yumen 100 MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project is currently well prepared to start construction. Early-stage documents have been approved, and the optimization work of receiver tower design is to be completed, the tower building is supposed to be started very soon by the end of this month, said the project location Yumen officials.

To better provide support from the government, Hu Zhiyong, Mayor of Yumen city paid a visit to the 100MW CSP tower project site in Huahai CSP Park, Yumen city, Gansu province on May 19th. Mr. Hu got learned of the progress of the project and safety of the employees, he spoke highly of the rapid development of the 100 MW CSP project especially under the COVID-19 epidemic. “Shouhang Yumen 100MW CSP Tower Plant is a flagship project in Yumen, it contributes a lot to the economic increase of the city.” Hu commented.

With a land area of 12.95 km2, Yumen Shouhang 100MW Tower CSP Project takes molten salt tower solar thermal power technology equipped with 12 hours’ thermal storage system. The project has successfully held feasibility study meeting in December 2019 last year in Beijing, and NWEPDI wrote and edited the feasibility report. And an investment of CNY 960 million will be completed by the end of this year for the project.
