Due to winter construction phase, the bad weather such as low temperature, severe cold, strong wind and dust weather has caused great difficulties for the construction of the project. To ensure the installation of molten salt tank, a special protective cover was made to keep the sand away and to create welding condition for it. Made of PVC material, the inflatable tent is 23 meters high, 44 meters in diameter, weighs 4.7 tons, and has a volume of 41054.34 cubic meters, being the largest tent in Asia. The construction of storage tank in winter is effectively ensured after the installation of the tent.
