Reported from CSPPLAZA: The 35,000 tons salt melting of the CGN Delingha 50MW parabolic trough CSP plant, one of China’s first batch of demonstration CSP projects has just finished, marking China’s first commercial CSP plant of large scale makes strides in progress.
The salt melting service provider, Bai Ji Rui (Tianjin) New Energy Co.,Ltd, shortens the contracted 60 days to 43 days, and lifts the actual melting speed to 40 tons/h, high above the designed 30 tons/h, greatly accelerating the progress of the project. The project will soon be put into operation.
The CGN Delingha 50MW parabolic trough CSP plant has a total investment of 1.938 billion yuan and is equipped with 9 hours of molten salt heat storage. Ground was broken on the project in July 2014. Once completed, CGN Delingha 50MW parabolic trough CSP plant will be the first commercial parabolic trough project and the first operational demonstration CSP project in China.
