Luneng Haixi 50MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project is a crucial part of 700MW Luneng Haixi Geermu Multi-energy Complement Integration Optimization Pilot Project, which consists of 200MW PV, 400MW Wind, 50MW CSP and 50MW energy storage system. The 50MW CSP plant was started construction on June 30, 2017, and now entering construction peak period in spite of the freezing winter. It is expected to be operational in months this June 2019.
At that time, Luneng Haixi project will be the first large-scale commercial solar thermal power plant which is not amongst China 1st batch of CSP demonstration projects, and predictably the 4th one after CGN Delingha 50MW parabolic trough, Shouhang Dunhuang 100MW molten salt tower, and SUPCON Delingha 50MW molten salt tower CSP projects.
A total number of 4,400 heliostats (138m² per) will be installed in the solar field covering an area of 610000m². The receiver tower will be 181.1 meters high, of which 147.4 meters are made up of reinforced concrete. Up to date, the 147.4m concrete tower has been completed, and more than 140 heliostats have been installed and commissioned.
