The 100MW Agricultural-Photovoltaic Power Complement Top Runner Project locates in a coal mining subsidence area in Xintai City, Shandong Province and covers a total area of more than 5,200acres. With agriculture-based engineering construction and under the principle of effectively combining agriculture and photovoltaic power generation, the project is designed to promote the upgrading and transformation of traditional agriculture, the large-scale development of modern, technology-driven agriculture and the development of new energy power generation, increase the proportion of renewable energy and improve the energy supply structure.
The project adopts multi-form brackets and multi-specification modules. As to brackets, the project adopts a combination of fixed brackets and horizontal single-axis brackets which account for 20% and 80% of the total respectively. As to modules, the project adopts high-efficiency PERC 295W monocrystalline modules and N-type double-sided double-glass 310W monocrystalline modules. The 100MW Agricultural-Photovoltaic Power Complement Top Runner Project in Xintai, Shandong Province has obtained two utility model patent certificates issued by the National Intellectual Property Administration, namely "Diamond Installation Parts and Diamond Installation Platform" and "Inverted T-type Installation Parts and Inverted T-type Installation Platform".
Located in Whyalla, Southern Australia, the Whyalla Photovoltaic Power and Storage Project has two phases with a total installed capacity of 12.22MW. The Phase I of the project, a 6MW photovoltaic power plant, covers an area of 10 hectares and has an annual output of clean power which serves the needs of 1,400 households in Southern Australia and reduces carbon emissions by 7,500 tonnes a year. The project will be equipped with an energy storage system for peak-load shifting, with a view to improving the utilisation of photovoltaic power. The Phase I photovoltaic power plant has been connected to the grid for power generation and officially put into operation. The 5MW/10MWh lithium battery energy storage facilities for Phase I of the project, and the Phase II of the project, a 6.22MW photovoltaic power plant, and related battery energy storage facilities will be put into construction soon.
The Whyalla Photovoltaic Project Phase I, as one of the first two grid-connected ground-mounted photovoltaic power plants in Southern Australia, has received high recognition and support from the local government. The municipal government of Whyalla sent personnel visiting the Group's Beijing headquarters in July 2018, whereby both parties wish to have further cooperation.
