Client: AREVA Solar
POWER Engineers participated in the value engineering effort to reduce cost for the construction of the 250 MW Solar Dawn Project, a solar thermal plant which will be constructed in Australia. POWER Engineers provided multidiscipline engineering support to develop alternate design solutions which will lower the installed construction cost of the plant. POWER Engineers was successful in identifying design modifications which have resulted in significant savings in the civil and structural portion of the solar collection field. POWER Engineers also evaluated design alternatives for the mechanical and electrical portion of the solar collection field.
