Greece, Nov.11- witnessed by Chinese President Xi
Jinping and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis - the financing
cooperation agreement of the Greece Minos 50MW Tower CSP Project was formally
signed. In the meantime, the China Gezhouba Group International Engineering
Co., Ltd. (CGGC) & ZHEJIANG SUPCON SOLAR TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD (SUPCON SOLAR)
consortium and Nur-MOH Heliothermal S.A. signed the EPC framework contract.
The project site lies in the southeast of Crete Island, which is the biggest island of Greece with abundant sunshine. It will adopt SUPCON self-developed molten salt tower CSP technology, which converts solar energy into continuous, stable, dispatchable electricity. It will lower local diesel power consumption, thus to protect the environment and tourism resource. This project is the first “Technology + Equipment + Engineering” cooperation mode for China's CSP technology to go international. And it is also the first greenfield project in the power industry undertaken by Chinese enterprises in Greece.
“SUPCON SOLAR will make every effort to guarantee the construction of the project and build it into a benchmark project of global solar power project.” Said Jin Jianxiang, Chairman of SUPCON SOLAR. “…SUPCON SOLAR will stick to the development of CSP technology and lower power generation costs, fulfilling its vision of ‘To provide high-quality, low-cost, and clean energy’ and contributing to the sustainable development of human society.”
