Kogan Creek Solar Boost

<BACK

NO.1-1-1


Kogan Creek Solar Boost project is set to become the largest solar integration with a coal-fired power station in the world. The project consist of a CLFR solar thermal augmentation of the existing Kogan Creek Power Station, increasing the power station’s electrical output and fuel efficiency. The solar addition will enable the 750 megawatt power station, already one of Australia’s most efficient coal-fired power stations and Australia’s largest single unit, to produce more electricity with the same amount of coal. The project will help avoid 35,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, the equivalent to taking 11,000 cars of the road annually.
