Reported from CSPPLAZA: On the afternoon of August 28, CSPPLAZA VIP member national tour research team visited Hangzhou Boiler Group Co., Ltd. (referred to as Hangzhou Boiler) , which is the second station of the first phase of this activity held and sponsored by CSPPLAZA and Beijing TRX Solar Technology Co., Ltd. respectively.
First, the delegation visited the exhibition hall and got acquainted with the development process and the current business distribution of Hangzhou Boiler since 1955 when it was established. Weixiao He, General Manager of Hangzhou Boiler and Feiqi Yao, director of the design office from Hangzhou Boiler as well attended the research forum. Both sides discussed about the development status, problems and suggestions of the company and CSP industry.
Weixiao He said: “The domestic and foreign products should be put on the same competition line when it comes to equipment procurement for CSP, there should be no reason to exclude the domestic manufacturers, especially for some manufacturers which own operating performance and they should be given opportunities to participate in the competition.
He also pointed out that as receivers and other thermal equipment manufacturers, Hangzhou Boiler also needs support from other related equipment manufacturers, such as molten salt valve, and hoped that the relevant domestic manufacturers could make technological breakthroughs and jointly support the development of localization.
At the same time, combined with their own experience, Hangzhou Boiler also offered some recommendations and comments on the low-cost bidding and other hot issues of CSP industry. After the research activity, CSPPLAZA will issue a research report which will systematically pool the opinions and suggestions on the healthy development of enterprises and industries provided by the research companies and give them back to the relevant authorities.
The delegation visited Hangzhou Boiler’s production base located in Chongxian. It is understood that the receiver for Supcon Delingha 50MW molten salt tower thermal power plant will be manufactured here, and it is planned to be delivered in next April, and installed in September, 2018.
In the case of offering receivers (both water quality and molten salt) for Supcon Delingha 10MW CSP project which operates steadily, and making continuously design optimization, Hangzhou Boiler has completed the design for molten salt receivers system which can adapt to high heat flow and complex conditions of frequent fluctuations, and has gradually been the leader of domestic CSP key equipment of receiver. Hangzhou Boiler as a VIP member of CSPPLAZA received the plaque issued by the Chief Editor from CSPPLAZA in this research activity.
Note: This tour research activity is positioned as a public welfare activity for the industry and in the next more than a month’s time, CSPPLAZA will visit and research its dozens of platform member units through four stages. The purpose of this activity is to have a more objective, comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the survival state of the enterprises in the CSP industry in the current market environment, to explore the status and problems of the CSP market in the eyes of the enterprises, to learn from the enterprises’ proposals and opinions for the industry’s development; to excavate and propagate more extensively the enterprise strength of the industry, and to create a better media environment for the healthy development of the industry.
Reports will be released after the research, so as to pass the real demands and voices to leaders of the relevant government and industry authorities and provide true and reliable information references for the government’s decision-making.
