Kogan Creek Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project delayed again

The already delayed project to add concentrating solar thermal boosting to CS Energy’s Kogan Creek coal power station has been delayed by 12 months.

The project was due to be completed this year and was to provide 44 megawatts of electrical energy at peak conditions from 5,460 solar reflectors, using compact linear Fresnel technology from AREVA’s solar division.

ABC reports that the company says while the panels are ready to be installed and some site works have been completed, there are ongoing technical issues it needs to work through with the contractor AREVA Solar.
