SkyFuel is constructing the CSP plant using its SkyTrough parabolic troughs for project developer Huludao Ruixinda Industry Co, the state-owned Assets Supervision & Administration Commission (SASC) and the US-China Economic and Cultural Development Alliance (US-China ECDA).
BoHua Wu, President & General Manager of Huludao Ruixinda Industry Co, says: “This project will be a showcase for concentrating solar power in China.”
Together with SASAC and US-China ECDA, SkyFuel says it is pursuing other opportunities throughout China for solar power. Other projects in development include fuel switching of existing fossil-fired power plants with solar energy.
“We are very excited to have this opportunity to provide the solar collectors for Huludao,” adds Kelly Beninga, SkyFuel’s Chief Commercial Officer. “This is a first step into a new market that holds great promise for SkyFuel”.
