- CEEC has announced its subsidiaries have started construction on 2 big solar and storage projects in China
- 500 MW Shanxi Changzhi Solar Power Plant will be developed as 2 projects of 250 MW capacity each in Licheng County and Pingshun County
- Energy storage project in Nanjing will have 130.88 MW/268.6 MWh capacity that will be able to store power equivalent to 1-hour power generation by a 250 MW medium-sized power plant
China Energy Engineering Corporation Limited (CEEC), an infrastructure construction and equipment manufacturing company in China, has announced it has started building 500 MW solar capacity to be realized in the form of 2 projects of 250 MW each in Licheng County and Pingshun County of China.
A Hong Kong stock exchange filing describes the Shanxi Changzhi solar project as one of the important demonstration projects in the country to promote PV power generation technology advancement, industrial upgrading, market application and cost reduction.
Yet another announcement from the company relates to breaking ground for its energy storage project in Jiangbei, Nanjing. Located in the direct management area of Jiangbei New District in Nanjing, total storage capacity of the project is 130.88 MW/268.6 MWh. Both the solar PV plant and energy storage projects are being developed by subsidiaries of CEEC.
About the energy storage project, CEEC says once completed, the stored power will be equivalent to 1-hour power generation by a 250 MW medium-sized power plant. “With the application of advanced technologies, such as the Internet of Things, on the overall engineering, the Project can analyze the big data of batteries’ health status, early detect the life status and potential defects of energy storage batteries. By optimizing battery energy conversion topology structure, the Project maximizes the storage capacity of each battery,” said Chairman of the company, Wang Jianping.
The management did not specify when the projects are expected to come online or the investment these require.
