China-based developer Hangzhou Fengling Electricity Science Technology lately ended up developing a 120 MW solar plant externally of the Changhe as well as Zhouxiang storage tanks in Cixi, Zhejiang district. The variety is the 2nd stage of a 320 MW PV project, complying with the completion of the initial 200 MW stage in 2017.

Chinese inverter manufacturer Shenzhen Kstar Science as well as Technology, which provided its GSL2500C-MV as well as GSL1250 main inverters for the 2nd stage, lately exposed a number of information concerning the plant in a brief discussion with pv magazine.

" The 320 MW plant has actually currently an anticipated yearly generation of 352 million KWH," claimed Tammy Tang, Kstar advertising supervisor. "The yearly income from the created electrical power for the proprietor of the plant has to do with $45 million, while the yearly fishery revenue can get to almost $5 million."

The plant's 2nd stage, which is offering power at a price of RMB0.95 ($ 0.12)/ kWh, needed a total financial investment of around $100 million. Kstar stated the offered inverters were especially personalized for nuclear power plant improved water and also have the ability to function securely in damp settings. "The inverters have securities versus dust and also dampness," Tang included.

The developer is integrating solar energy generation with a tank farming procedure. "The photovoltaic panels are established over the water surface area of the water as well as the storage tank location listed below the photovoltaic panel can be utilized for fish growing," Tang included. "Fishermen can fish as well as row watercrafts there."

She stated the visibility of the panels likewise aids to decrease water surface area dissipation and also conserve water sources, while likewise developing a far better hatching atmosphere for fish and also raising water manufacturing. "The PV nuclear power plant has a high-power generation effectiveness and also reduced procedures as well as upkeep expenses, in addition to a marginal influence on the naval life," Tang claimed.

A comparable project 260 MW solar project was just recently settled by China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN). The plant is unsubsidized and also markets power at RMB0.3844/ kWh. The center lies at a fishery in Dangtu region, Anhui district.
