Reported from CSPPLAZA: It is reported that, recently, CNNC Urat Middle Banner 100MW thermal oil parabolic through CSP project, one of the first batch of China’s CSP demonstration projects, is being advanced in an intense but orderly manner. As of now, more than 50% of the site formation project has been completed.
According to previous report of CSPPLAZA, on April 28, 2017, the groundbreaking ceremony of the project was held. In the following three months, the project successfully completed the previous work such as project financing. On July 21, the project site-leveling work was officially started, which marks the project entered into the official stage of construction. On July 29, the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation New Energy Co., Ltd. (consortium of China Energy Engineering Group Heilongjiang Electric Power Design Co., Ltd. and Ingeteam Power Technology S.A. ) won the EPC contract. On October 16, the tender of steam turbines for the project was announced and the bid result is expected to be released in the near future.
This project is located in Urat Middle Banner of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The site is 2505m wide from east to west and about 1970m from north to south. It is relatively regular and covers an area of about 493.5hm2. The project intends to build a 100MW solar thermal power plant with 10-hour (tentative) of thermal storage, which requires to construct 375 sets of heat collecting circuits (tentative), steam generating systems, steam turbine generators and other auxiliary equipment.
