edstone 100MW Tower CSP project in South Africa is located in North Cape Town Province, which has abundant light resources. The project adopts tower photothermal technology, and its heliostatic mirror adopts small mirror structure, with a total surface area of more than one million square meters.
The project is expected to deliver 480GWh of electricity to the grid every year, providing stable power supply to more than 200,000 households in South Africa. The project reached a milestone on the afternoon of October 10, when the minaret reached a height of 211.6 meters.
Focus on the present and the future. With the advantages of zero consumption, zero emission, zero pollution and long life cycle, photothermal power generation has become the inevitable choice to meet the world's electricity demand in a clean and green way. Relying on its rich engineering performance and sophisticated core technology, PowerChina has taken the leading share of the global solar thermal market with its wisdom and strength, intensive business research and quality contract performance. Powerchina has gradually developed into a leader in the "Belt and Road" construction and energy cooperation, as well as a global leader in clean and low-carbon energy.
