Specifically, the project is equipped with affordable medium-low power Fresnel concentrating solar technology, common clean water circular heat transfer technology and large-scale long-term heat storage pool technology, whose payback period is considered to be under 5 years, and the heating price is under 45yuan/GJ.
2. Consortium formed by Runh Power Corp. Ltd.& Rackam & Solar Thermal Processes JV
Reasons for entry: Sino-foreign cooperation to promote the development of trough solar thermal power application market.
Runh Power Corp. Ltd has been focusing on design, development, manufacturing, installation, and operation of new generation trough solar collectors, in a partnership with Rackam // Solar Thermal Processes since 2017, to realize cost-effective application of trough solar power medium temperature technology. Rackam is devoted to providing effective CSP solutions for energy-insentive industrial users, and is capable of generating heat power under the temperature of 75℃ to 300℃。
Rackam applied light trough collectors as core heat collecting units, which adopt aluminum alloy holder, as well as mirror reflex aluminum as concentrating lens. the frame structure of which is able to significantly reduce the weight of collectors. Precisely, the concentrating lens was equipped with cellular integrated structure design, which not only took advantage of effective reflectivity of reflex aluminum, but also guaranteed the structure intensity of collectors. Generally, all the facilities are provided in a way of modular manufacture, which is convenient for assembling, adjusting, and maintaining. Furthermore, the three different collecting technologies provided by Rackam-rack10、rack20、rack30, are considered to be adopted separately in the areas of roof and floor installation as well as large-scale projects at present time.
Office Building Heating Project in Liaocheng, Shandong
Elis Laundry Room Solar Energy Project in Barcelona
Currently, the Office Building Heating Project located in Liaocheng Shandong constructed by the consortium with the installation surface of 452㎡, the heating surface of 2500㎡ and the designing power of 192KW, has been perfectly completed, same to the Barcelona Elis Laundry Room Solar Energy Project with installation surface of 858㎡ and designing power of 429KW assembled on roof. Thus, the successful construction of the two projects proved the characteristics of serviceability and cost-effectiveness of the technology.
3. Chengdu BoYu new energy Co. Ltd.( BoYu below)
Reasons for entry: Drive the rapid development of trough collector technology in heating market.
BoYu is one of the very-first group of enterprises specialized in designing, manufacturing, assembling and adjusting of trough collector holders. Of variety of successful projects the ones in solar power heating and industrial steam areas located in Xinjiang Yining, Ningxia Yinchuan, Qinghai Delingha,Tibet Lhasa, Tibet Shigatse, Shanxi Weinan, Jiangxu Changzhou etc, perfectly proved its massive project operation experiences obtained from practice.
Taking the Ningxia Cezanne trough industrial steam project as an instance, this project equipped with 24 TRP-B trough collectors provided by BoYu with a collecting surface of 1680㎡ has been performing well since in July 2018, which applied HTF as heat transfer medium, generating high temperature steam through oil-water heat exchanger, with a daily capacity of 5.1t steam of 180℃.
There are two companies’projects in Belgium equipped with the TRP-B trough solar energy collectors which has already been delivered to Belgium at the end of May this year.
