China suspends tender for 4 GW offgrid solar-hydrogen project



China has suspended a tender for a 4 GW off-grid solar-hydrogen project. The 35 billion yuan ($4.83 billion) project to be built in Jiuquan, Gansu province, will include 800 MW/1,600 MWh of energy storage. It is designed to contain 8,638 electrolyzers and has an area of ​​67 km².

The authority started the tender process earlier this week. It said the suspension was specifically because one of the bidders had incorrectly submitted some documents.

“We expect the bidding process to continue,” the platform said.

The 35 billion yuan facility will be built in Jiuquan city and will have 800MW/1600MWh of energy storage. It uses 8,638 electrolyzers and has a total area of ​​67 km2.

Investment bank Citic Capital estimates that a solar-powered hydrogen plant can produce up to 200,000 tons of hydrogen per year. If achieved, this would set a record in China for both the largest single hydrogen production scale and the tender for hydrogen production volume. The project is planned to be commissioned by the end of 2026.
