Solar Dawn consortium selected for 250 MW Australian hybrid plant


Yesterday, pv magazine reported on the governmental announcement of funding for two large solar power generation projects in Australia, marking the confirmation of a major shift towards solar technology by state and federal governments. Details have now emerged as to the successful renewable energy project and bid.

The Solar Dawn plant will provide base-load renewable electricity, combining AREVA Solar’s Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector solar steam generators with a gas boiler back-up, providing around the clock generation.

The consortium hopes to finalize relevant approvals, finance, maintenance and engineering, procurement and construction contracts by the end of 2011.
