It seems the "solar tower" dream never dies, with the ABC reporting that a (hitherto unknown to me) company is talking about building 3 plants in Victoria (I'm assuming this is a retread of the old solar tower scheme planned for the area, not a CSP plant - details are sparse) - Asian company eyes solar tower development
An Asian development company has lodged applications for planned solar towers in north-west Victoria.
Suntec Solar is not revealing the exact locations of its three preferred sites at this stage, but says they are each about 800 hectares of private land and each would be the site of a 200-megawatt solar tower.
The company says it has shifted its focus for solar tower development to north-west Victoria because the land is flat, the weather is ideal and the sites are close to transmission infrastructure.
It says meteorological and solar testing has found the sites are suitable and will finish archaeological and environmental surveys by March.
