How China’s Cosin Solar Solved Some Tower Concentrated Solar Power Challenges

Known then as Supcon Solar, Cosin Solar developed two tower projects in China’s pilot CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) program; as technology and core equipment provider on PowerChina Gonghe 50MW tower CSP, and developing the Supcon Delingha 50MW tower CSP. These were two of the five tower CSP demonstration projects that [...]

How Did Cosin Concentrated Solar Power Tower Reach Projected Performance So Fast?

Cosin Solar (previously Supcon Solar) seemed to burst on the global Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) scene as a fully fledged Chinese CSP firm. Among China’s pilot projects, the Supcon Delingha 50 MW tower CSP with 7 hours of storage in Qinghai Province was among the few to succeed in China’s [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Tower To Be Transformed Into Iconic Landmark For Beijing 2022

Renovation of the concentrated solar power tower located in Beijing's Yanqing district has started and is expected to become an iconic landmark for Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games. The project, scheduled to be completed in January of 2022, will see the 119.5 meters tower bear a giant Olympic rings logo [...]

Dual-tower CSP plants: optical assessment and optimization with a novel cone-tracing model

Highlights • Dual-towers are 1.5 points more optically efficient than single-towers. • Tower selection algorithm enhances the field cosine factors by 3.5 points. • Spillage losses computed with a novel cone-tracing model. • Difference with SolTrace: 0.43% (spillage) and 0.84% (shading and blocking). • Optimized heliostat fields exceed the [...]

Shanghai Electric Makes Significant Progress on the CSP Tower and Parabolic Trough Plant in Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park

Shanghai Electric ("Shanghai Electric" or "the Company") (601727.SS and 02727.HK) announced that the first molten salt tank hydro test for the Parabolic Trough Plant-II (PT2) of the fourth phase of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park was carried out on May 9, the positive results of which laid a crucial [...]

Dewa set to commission world’s tallest Concentrated Solar Power tower in September

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority is set to commission the world's tallest concentrated solar power (CSP) tower located within the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, in September. Standing tall at 262.44 m, the tower has a capacity of 100 MW in addition to 200 MW from parabolic trough. [...]

HelioControl Project Completed: Determination and control of aim points for heliostat fields in operation

Among concentrated solar power plants, solar tower systems are considered to have the greatest potential in terms of efficiency and cost reduction. In particular, costs can be saved on mirrors (heliostats), which account for between 30 and 40 percent of the investment. Frequent calibration or control of the heliostat [...]

Concentrated Solar Power towers’ impact on birdlife lower than expected

A study conducted by Stellenbosch University’s Faculty of AgriSciences has found that the 50 MW Khi Solar One Concentrated Solar Power facility, near Upington, is impacting on the surrounding bird life, but not to the extent expected. It is also possible to reduce the impact that concentrating solar power (CSP) [...]

High Temparature concentrated solar power plan with particle receiver and direct thermal storage

Clean solar energy with storage can help Europe reduce emissions and deliver a secure and cost-effective electricity supply. EU-funded research suggests that fluidised crystal particles trump molten salts as the heat transfer and storage medium. © Gilles Flamant Current state of the art concentrated solar power (CSP) plants use central [...]

Delingha: A Leap for Molten Salt Tower Concentrated Solar Power Technology

The 50-MW Delingha concentrated solar power tower plant located on the high-altitude Tibetan Plateau in China was developed, built, and continues to be refined by a company dedicated to solar tower technology research. China, a country that has added more than 200 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity over the last [...]

How Concentrated Solar Power Works: Tower, Trough, Fresnel or Dish

All concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies use a mirror configuration to concentrate the sun’s light energy onto a receiver and convert it into heat. The heat can then be used to create steam to drive a turbine to produce electrical power or used as industrial process heat. Concentrating solar power [...]
