China started the first commercial solar power station

The China's first large commercial solar thermal power plant is brought into operation in the Province of Qinghai, it is said in the statement of the Chinese general corporation of nuclear power (CGN).

Start of the station which power is 50 MW occurred on Wednesday. The project received the name Delinkh in honor of the city where the station is located. It is planned that will produce up to 200 million kW-hours of the electric power here a year. It is noted that for development of the same volume of the electric power at coal power plant it is required to burn about 60 thousand tons of coal that in turn would lead 100 thousand tons of greenhouse gases to emission in the atmosphere.

New thermal power plant belongs to type of the stations working at the concentrated solar energy (CSP) that is unusual to China as here most often build solar stations with photo-electric installations (PV). Their difference that PV stations by means of special materials directly will transform solar energy to electricity while in CSP stations the system of lenses and mirrors for accumulation of solar energy and a warming up by means of the concentrated ray of light of the traditional steam generator is used.

At the station are established 250 thousand mirrors, and the total area of a smooth surface is 620 thousand square meters. The station is equipped with the system of accumulation and storage of energy, in a thermal dome the tank, largest in Asia, with the melted salt with a diameter of 42 meters for energy storage is located. When sunlight is not enough, the saved-up energy can continue to help to produce electricity, providing the round-the-clock stability in work of the station.

Is noted that the thermal power plant in the city of Delinkha became the first of 20 stations working at the concentrated solar energy which in the next years are planned to be built in the territory of China.

In the company also noted that the stations working at the concentrated solar energy are stabler and can act as the main infrastructure in this or that area.

the Station in the city of Delinkha also became the first Chinese project in the power sphere which is constructed by means of the credit from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
