Aries Ingeniería y Sistemas and CGN Delingha Solar Energy Corporation have recently signed an (Owner’s Engineer) OE contract, after China CSP developer launched a competitive tender process. Delingha project is a 50 MW solar thermal parabolic trough power plant, where solar energy is transformed in high pressure steam and then becomes electrical power thanks to the movement of a turbine. The project will include a solar field of about 190 loops and will have a thermal storage in molten salts equivalent to 1300 MWh. This plant is expected to be in operation in the next 2 years. This solar plant is located in Delingha, capital of the Haixi Mongol and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai Province. It is an important milestone for the sector worldwide and especially for the renewable energy industry in this region.
Aries Ingeniería y Sistemas’ portfolio exceeds 1,000 MW in international renewable energy projects. The firm, with offices in Spain, United States, and in China, has successfully developed projects in more than 22 countries.
One of their most recent accomplishments came with winning a bid to construct a concentrated solar plant in Ouarzazate; the first stand-alone thermoelectric solar energy project in North Africa, as well as Bokpoort project in South Africa. Aries Ingeniería y Sistemas provides with a wide range of integrated engineering services for the energy generation industry, as well as advanced owner’s engineering and technical advisory for large energy projects especially with technologies such as CSP, PV, Wind, Hydro and Cogeneration Systems.
Ignacio Sáenz, Business Development Director at Aries Ingeniería y Sistemas has recently stated: “We are very proud of being part of this huge and strategic step for the CSP sector in China. I strongly believe that Aries will go on reinforcing its position as leading company in renewable energy sector. This is the only possible strategy –informed- in a constantly growing market as the Asian one.”
