Aalborg CSP together with its local manufacturing partner, Livo New Energy Technology was selected to supply the boiler equipment capable of securing uninterrupted conversion of solar heat to superheated steam at 136 bara and 538°C for the 50MW Shenzen Jinfan molten salt CSP plant.


Client:       Jiangsu Livo New Energy Technology Co., Ltd
End user/Owner:         Shenzhen JinFan Power Co.,Ltd. 
Location:    Aksai, Gansu Province, People’s Republic of China
Status:    Under construction
Supplied technology:    Molten salt steam generation system

The plant is a flagship project with its exceptionally long 15-hours energy storage capability and is part of China’s five-year plan aiming to change the landscape of large-scale electricity production. 

The molten salt steam generation system intended for the Shenzen Jinfan project was specifically designed to meet emerging market expectations for cost-efficient and reliable electricity production when using molten salt - an essential criteria developing markets demands to meet low price levels. The plant will benefit from award-winning operational features, such as natural circulation, leakage-free design, and fast-start-up time (10 ºC/min). These operational benefits translate into significant savings in terms of component CAPEX and OPEX as the plant will be able to produce more energy compared to an ordinary heat exchanger and reduce the need for certain auxiliary components. Aalborg CSP’s scope of supply also includes instruments, valves, heat tracing for the pressure vessels and all interconnecting piping.
