The 20MW Xuzhou photovoltaic power station, wholly owned by GCL-Poly Energy Holdings, is now fully constructed and connected to the grid after a period of three months. Now that the project is complete, it is the largest of its kind in China.
Zhu Gong Shan, the executive director, chairman and CEO of GCL-Poly, said, “As the largest solar power station in terms of installed capacity in China, Xuzhou photovoltaic power station is an exemplary project of the domestic photovoltaic industry. The station has made the breakthrough in project construction and research in the domain of large-scale photovoltaic power station in China.”
The completed power station is located in Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province, and covers an area of approximately 700mu, with a total investment of approximately RMB420 million (approx. €43 million) and installed capacity of 20MW. The station is expected to have an annual power generation of approximately 26,000,000kWh and operate for approximately 1,300 hours annually.
Zhu Gong Shan added, “The completion of Xuzhou Photovoltaic Power Station marks GCL-Poly’s successful expansion from polysilicon and wafer manufacturing within the upstream solar space to photovoltaic power generation within the downstream solar space, cementing a solid foundation for the company to capture the huge opportunities arising from global photovoltaic power generation.”
