Review meeting of feasibility studies on Jinfan Golmud 2×100MW Molten Salt Parabolic Trough CSP Project to be held successfully

Reported from CSPPLAZA: On December 11, Review meeting of feasibility studies on Jinfan Golmud 2×100MW Molten Salt Parabolic Trough CSP Project  was successfully held in Beijing. The project feasibility study report was prepared by Power Construction Corporation of China Northwest Engineering Corporation Limited(hereinafter referred to as “Northwest Engineering”) and Golmud Jinfan CSP Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as ” Jinfan CSP”) is the construction unit of the project.

Northwest Engineering carried out a detailed description of the project’s feasibility study report. The solar collector system of the project chooses trough parabolic reflectors to concentrate light and absorb heat. The heat-absorbing pipe adopts the straight-through vacuum tube. The total aperture area of the mirror field is about 2.83 million㎡. The project is designed to deploy a molten salt heat storage system for up to 15 hours and binary molten salts (60% NaNO3 and 40% KNO3) will be selected as endothermic / heat transfer medium. The total heat storage capacity of the project is 7640 MWth.

Taking into account the specific construction conditions, ultra-high pressure and temperature direct air-cooled steam turbine with 100MW of stand-alone rated power may be applied to the project. Upon completion, the project will be integrated into the Northwest Power Grid.

During the meeting, the attendees discussed in detail the content of the feasibility study report and conducted a comprehensive, careful and detailed review of the report. The evaluation experts affirmed the report content and put forward specific comments and suggestions and this process is expected to be completed soon. Jinfan CSP expresses that it will continue to actively promote the pre-development work of this project to prepare for the declaration of the second batch of China’s CSP demonstration projects.

Enclosing herewith the project’s basic information:

The project is located in the CSP Planning and Development Park of Golmud City and covers an area of 10.25km2.

The project is expected have a static investment of 6443.1 million yuan and a dynamic investment of 67225.1 million yuan. The construction period is 2 years and the operation&maintenance period is 25 years. After the completion of the project, it is estimated that the annual generating capacity will reach 790 million Kw/h.
