Reported from CSPPLAZA: The construction of Yumen Xinneng 50MW molten salt tower CSP project is accelerating.
At present, the No.1 module has been completed; the beam-down tower of the No.2 module has been assembled, the spherical grid has been upgraded by 14.5m, and 357 sets of heliostats have completed installation; the assemblage of beam-down tower of the No.3 module has completed 30% and the heliostat foundation pouring has been completed; civil foundation and tower welding of 4-10 module are underway; the No.1-5 module is planned to be completed and connected to the grid by 2018.
Project construction site:
Yumen Xinneng 50MW molten salt tower CSP demonstration project is one of China’s first batch of CSP demonstration projects. It adopts a beam-down technology and will build 15 heat collecting modules with 9 hours of molten salt energy storage system. After the plant is connected to the grid, it can provide 100% clean electricity to 20,000 households every year.
