Kogan Creek Solar Boost Project

The Kogan Creek Solar Boost Project (also known as the Solar Dawn Project) will involve the installation of a 44 MW solar thermal addition to the Kogan Creek coal-fired Power Station. near Chinchilla in South West Queensland. Kogan Creek Power Station will become the largest solar integration with a coal-fired power station in the world.

The project is a joint venture of CS Energy, the Australian Government, the Queensland Government and AREVA Solar.

The project will use AREVA Solar’s Australian-pioneered compact linear fresnel reflector (CLFR) technology to supply additional steam to the power station’s turbine, supplementing the conventional coal-fired steam generation process. The technology uses heat from the sun to convert water to steam with zero emissions. It is the most land-efficient solar technology, generating 1.5 to 2.6 times more peak power per acre of land than competing solar technologies and is the only CLFR provider to supply superheated steam which has specific application to the power generation market.

In February 2014, the developers advised that a series of problems, including an equipment supplier going into receivership, have delayed the project and it was likely to be in 2015.

In March 2016, CS Energy announced that the project would not be completed.
