Solar Power
Full Industry Chain of Solar Power

SPIC has the greatest total installed capacity of solar power in the world and owns a complete industry chain in PV power including R&D, planning and design, manufacturing of polysilicon, cells and modules, project construction,training, etc.

By the end of 2016, SPIC owned a solar power capacity of7118.4 MW, and has established large-scale new energy bases in Jiuquan, Gonghe, Golmud, Hami, Yancheng, etc. SPIC’s solar power assets are located in 15 provinces and autonomous regions in China including Qinghai, Xinjiang, Hebei, Jiangsu, Gansu, etc. (overseas assets excluded).

Through the coordinated operation of hybrid hydro-solar and hybrid wind-solar projects and research on key technologies, SPIC successfully solved the problems related to the volatility, randomness and intermittency of daily PV power output and improved the quality of PV power output and the stability of grid operation, which filled the gap of key technologies for large-scale hybrid hydro-solar projects in the world.

Representative projects
 
Golmud PV Power Plant

Located in the Golmud Gobi Desert, Golmud PV power plant is the largest one-off PV investment in the world, with an installed capacity of 500 MW.

 
 
Jiangsu Jianhu Solar Power Plant

The Jiangsu Jianhu Hybrid Fishery-Solar Project has an installed capacity of 66 MW. The large-scale PV power plant was built on the local lake, intertidal zones and fish ponds. Multipurpose use of land increases both the agriculture and fishery revenue, and improves the integrated utilization efficiency of land.

 
 
Longyangxia Hybrid Hydro-Solar Project

With a total installed capacity of 850 MWp, the project makes best of the complementarities between hydropower and solar power and the quick adjustment ability of Longyangxia HPP to make up for the active output from the PV power plant, so as to improve power quality.

 
Manufacturing of PV cells and modules

SPIC is capable of manufacturing crystalline silicon, wafers, cells and modules with the facilities to produce 2,500 tons of polysilicon, 200 MW of cells and 200 MW of modules each year in Xining, Qinghai Province and 200 MW of cells and 100 MW of modules each year in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province.

Design of PV power plants
SPIC designed the 18 MW Jining PV Power Plant, Asia’s largest non-silicon thin-film PV power plant.
