The perfect location for an international solar thermal showcase
The proposed Solar Dawn Project will be located 20km southeast of Chinchilla in South West Queensland.
The location is ideally suited for a solar thermal system due to its excellent solar insolation.
The proposed solar thermal power plant will be positioned in close proximity to CS Energy’s 750 megawatt Kogan Creek Power Station and the 44 megawatt Kogan Creek Solar Boost Project, which will also incorporate AREVA Solar’s CLFR technology. Importantly, its location provides close and secure connection to the electricity grid via Powerlink Queensland’s Western Downs Substation.
