Australian Government to provide funding for 250MW solar thermal project

The Australian Government will provide funding to a 250MW solar thermal gas hybrid power plant which will be located in South West Queensland, Australia.
solar power technology from French firm AREVA Solar to convert the sun’s energy into super-heated steam which will drive the plant’s turbines along with steam from burning coal. Areva Solar acquired the solar technology, called the Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR), when it bought Australian firm Ausra last year. (tietkiemnangluong.com.v)

The Australian Commonwealth and Queensland Governments will contribute $464m and $75m respectively to the power project, under its solar flagships program. The project called as Solar Dawn, will be developed by a consortium AREVA Solar, CS Energy and Wind Prospect CWP.

The project will be placed near CS Energy's recently announced 44MW Kogan Creek Solar Boost project.
Like Solar Dawn, Kogan Creek Solar Boost will also use AREVA Solar's compact linear fresnel reflector (CLFR) solar thermal technology.

Solar Dawn will combine AREVA Solar's CLFR solar steam generators with a gas boiler back-up system, giving it the ability to deliver around the clock power.

The Solar Dawn consortium plans to finalize all relevant approvals and financing arrangements, as well as engineering, procurement, construction, operations and maintenance contracts, by the end of this year.

AREVA Renewables CEO Anil Srivastava said the Solar Flagships program demonstrates the Australian and Queensland Governments' support for renewable energy.
The Solar Flagships Program aims to provide the foundation for large-scale, grid-connected solar power and accelerate the commercialization of this energy source in Australia.
