The company’s Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) technology will be installed at CS Energy’s Kogan Creek Power Station.

Construction of the solar project is slated to begin in the first half of 2011, with commercial operation planned for 2013.

The A$104.7m ($109.8m) power station will generate an additional 44,000MWh of electricity per year.

The project will use Areva’s CLFR superheated solar steam technology to improve its steam generation system, reliably increasing its electrical output and fuel efficiency.

Areva will build and operate a manufacturing facility to support the Kogan Creek Power Station Solar Boost project.

According to the company, the new manufacturing facility will serve as a gateway to support future solar thermal project developments in Queensland.
