Oversea market expanders: a brief analysis on Chinese companies showing enthusiasm over global CSP market

Reported from CSPPLAZA: Though dragged by developing domestic market, Chinese CSP companies still shows enthusiasm towards expanding oversea markets and have since earned great success and respect globally. Hereby we are going to analyze several Chinese companies who have been devoted to promoting China’s  CSP technology, products and project-construction ability world wide, in the term of, EPC and project consultation services,and facility supplyment.

EPC and Project Consultation Services

  Due to the shortage of commercialized CSP plants cases in home country, Chinese companies are in need of more experience in system-designing,system-integration, plant construction and operation.

Therefore, a few Chinese companies are now making their first step to EPC of oversea CSP projects, among whom Shandong Electric Power Construction Coperation Ⅲ(SEPCOⅢ)stands out  as an example.

facility supply

  China has completed the complex and long CSP manufacture line including multiple equipments supply and key CSP technologies.Through the past decades when CSP market lacked development, Chinese companies in CSP industry has been seeking for oversea market expanding with their technical and manufacturing abilities in equipment supply, especially in mirror and collector supply.

Meanwhile, some companies in traditional industry also has grabbed opportunities of applying their products to oversea CSP industry.

Nowadays in international CSP market, Chinese companies still have shortness in experience comparing to companies from other countries. However, the fast-growing market of domestic CSP demonstration projects have brought the first wave of opportunities to manufactors. With more chances to get involved in projects development, Chinese companies keep accumulating necessary experience for expanding a larger market over the world.It is expected that more orders will go to China and Chinese companies have good chance to play the leading role in globle CSP industry!
