The desert photovoltaic power plant in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China, which used Antaisolar manu-adjustable solar fixed solar racking and had an installed capacity of 100MW, has been successfully connected to the local grid.
It effectively encourages the organized production of local renewable energy, the ecological climate, plateau agriculture, and animal husbandry.
The region has a relatively dry environment, extreme land desertification, and dust storms are normal. The landscape of the region, which is located on a hill, is high and undulating. Antaisolar resolved the immense difficulties presented by the challenging construction environments, delivering technology and product resources for this PV project with considerable expertise in working with difficult solar racking projects.
By changing the tilt angle, the power station will receive more direct sunlight, improving power generation efficiency significantly. The power station’s annual power consumption is expected to be 195 million kwh, saving 64,200 tons of conventional coal and minimizing 204,000 tons of carbon dioxide and other gases.
There is no question that the growth of the photovoltaic industry in the desert and Gobi not only has significant economic benefits, but it also serves an ecological role of sand prevention and control. It is expected to be the third recent method of sand protection and management, following afforestation and desertification regulation and sediment fixation by sand barriers.
