At 14:19, April 17th,2019, SUPCON SOLAR Delingha 50MW CSP Solar Tower Plant reached full-load operation. Records show the major indicators of the system has exceeded their design parameters: The molten salt at the outlet of the receiver reached 566℃ and main steam pressure reached 13.3MPa. The maximum turbine generator output power reached 50.65MW. The main subsystems including heliostats field, MSR, storage tanks, SGS and turbine-generator unit run steadily.

The plant commissioned on Dec. 30th 2018 and reached the full-load operation in a very short time. It’s known that the project team will work diligently to make good of the defects and optimize plant performance to achieve the designed power generation and realize fully commercial operation soon.
SUPCON SOLAR Delingha 50MW molten salt solar tower CSP plant, one of China’s CSP pilot projects, is equipped with a 7-hour molten salt storage system and designed to generate 146 GWh electricity annually. The project started construction on March 15th , 2017 and connected to the grid on Dec. 30th, 2018. The plant is designed and constructed based on SUPCON SOLAR’s independent technologies, over 95% equipment are domestically sourced.
