The Collinsville Solar Thermal Power Station feasibility study will examine the feasibility of constructing and operating a 30 MW hybrid solar thermal power station at the site of the Collinsville Power Station. This includes an examination of the feasibility of reusing some of the existing plant from the coal-fired power station compared to using new plant.

The feasibility study will determine the capital cost and whether the construction of the solar thermal power station will be financially viable given the income generated from selling the electricity produced. The feasibility study also aims to improve the coordination and collaboration between the research community, government, fossil fuel-based power generators, the solar thermal industry and the broader renewable energy industry through data collection, analysis and knowledge-sharing activities.

The feasibility study has received funding of $2.5 million from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, ARENA, as part of ARENA's Emerging Renewables Program. ARENA's funding is provided to assist with the development and deployment of renewable energy technologies.

RATCH-Australia is partnering with The University of Queensland through a research program to address potential early stage operations and commissioning issues.
