China's largest solar power tower project achieves milestone


The Aksai Huidong New Energy solar farm, China's largest solar power tower project, reached a significant milestone by completing its panel field comprising an impressive 11,960 heliostats. This cutting-edge project sets itself apart by employing Chinese-initiated pentagonal heliostats, each weighing up to 1.2 tonnes and covering 48 square meters, to receive focused sunlight through the tower. Upon completion, the solar farm is expected to generate 1,700 GWh of power annually, saving 507,000 tonnes of standard coal and cutting 1.47 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions every year, equivalent to afforesting nearly 800 million square meters.
