The project is located in Dongmeng County, Nong Lak District, Khon Kaen Province, northeast of Thailand. The project includes the design, procurement, construction, installation, commissioning, trial operation and supporting transmission and transformation lines of a 90MW CSP-PV hybrid solar power plant. After the project is completed, it will effectively alleviate the problem of regional power shortage and meet people's demand for electricity.

As the first tower solar thermal power project in Greece, the project is a demonstration project for environmental protection in the world. The multilateral cooperation agreement is signed with the care of the leaders of the two countries and long-term joint efforts of financial institutions and enterprises.
Located on the Crete Island, Greece, the project features an installed capacity of 50MW molten salt solar-thermal power tower plant, with energy storage power generation of 5 hours. After completion, it can supply 10% of power required by the Crete Island, significantly increase the proportion of local clean energy, and protect eco-environment and tourism resources on the island. During construction, the project will effectively promote local employment and drive upstream and downstream development of the solar thermal power industry.
The project is financed by Chinese, Greek and regional multilateral financial institutions under the leadership of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and developed, built and operated by Chinese enterprises in cooperation with Greek and British enterprises, with the total investment of about 290 million euros. The combined development of the project has set an example for Chinese and western financial institutions and enterprises in cooperation in the third-party market in Greece, and has been included in a number of intergovernmental cooperation framework agreements such as the China-Greece Three-Year Cooperation Plan and China-UK Cooperation in Third-Party Market Development, as a typical project of international multilateral friendly cooperation.
Greece is not only an important pivot of land and maritime silk roads, but also the first European country signing the MOU on the "Belt and Road" Initiative with China. The Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotak is described the MINOS 50MW CSP Project as one of the "key green projects" and a kind of "strategic investment" in his opening remarks of the Thessaloniki International Fair this September.
