Image of post in post detailed view

has won government approval to build a major solar-to-hydrogen project in the country’s northwest China’s Gansu province, the first of many such projects to be constructed at the company’s existing domestic onshore fields.
The approval has enabled PetroChina to sign a contract with China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Company (CPECC) to start engineering, procurement and construction work.
CPECC is the contractor arm of PetroChina’s parent company China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).
Scheduled for completion at the end of next year, the project envisages construction of four water electrolysis hydrogen production units each with capacity of 1000 cubic metres per hour.
When completed in late 2024, the project will be able to produce 2100 tonnes per annum of green hydrogen.
The photovoltaic power generation module has a photovoltaic installed capacity of 30 megawatt peak for hydrogen production by electrolysis.
The annual average power generation capacity is 50,578 megawatt hours. It is equipped with a 35 kilovolt transmission line. The transmission line is connected from a photovoltaic substation to the hydrogen production units.
