The proposed project site, which is located about 4 kilometer (km) to the west of Jinta County in Gansu Province, is one of the most suitable locations due to high DNI of 1,923
kWh/m2/year and over 3,320 sunlight hours per annum, good access to infrastructure (road network, 110 kilovolt electric substation at 2 km distance), and availability of water for cleaning and cooling purposes. The proposed 50 MW plant will use a parabolic trough technology with one hour thermal storage including a natural gas back-up system. Parabolic trough is the most mature and commercially proven CSP technology, accounting for about 94% of operating CSP plants in the world. The Project will annually generate 90 gigawatt hour (GWh) clean electricity, thereby avoiding annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emission of 79,000 tons.
