Designed and built by China Shipbuilding New Power Co. Ltd., the 100-megawatt solar thermal power generation and storage project in Urad Middle Banner passed a national acceptance examination in October 2021.

Zhu Shengguo, general manager of the power plant, said that in the first quarter of this year, the company solved a technical bottleneck concerning internal cleaning of the system in winter, when the power output increased by 19.5 million kilowatt-hours, compared with the same period last year.

The power station is currently working round-the-clock and at full capacity, and is capable of meeting the daily evening electricity demands of 300,000 households.

The power plant can provide stable power supply while also serving as a solar and wind shield for local ecological preservation and restoration.
