Zenith Solar signs MOU with China

Israel's ZenithSolar Ltd., a developer of combined heat and power solar systems, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Energy Bureau of Gansu Provincial Development and Reform Commission of the People's Republic of China for cooperation in the development of combined heat and power (CHP) solar stations in the Gansu province.

Under the agreement, ZenithSolar will provide the technology for the installation of two 10 megawatt (MW) cogeneration plants based on ZenithSolar's Z20 CHP system. The Gansu Province lies at the edge of the Gobi desert and has the best solar energy conditions in China and among the best anywhere in the world. The agreement is focused on two planned facilities which are to be located in the cities of Jiayuguan and Jinchang and to commence their installation during 2011.

One of the installations will be used to provide electricity and process heat for an industrial plant and the other for a large neighborhood. Under the terms of the MOU, the Energy Bureau of Gansu will recommend the use of ZenithSolar's CHP system for other locations in the Gansu Province after the successful operation of the two pilot plants.

The Energy Bureau also announced that with the introduction of the CHP technology a scientific research center will be established to provide training for government institutions, enterprises and individuals to focus on the development of new solar energy technology.
