Vast Project Award

Primero is pleased to announce the award of the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract for Vast’s proposed 30MW VS1 Port Augusta concentrated solar thermal power (CSP) project.

VS1 will be a 30MW / 288 MWh CSP plant to be located in Port Augusta, South Australia. Utilising Vast’s proprietary modular tower CSP v3.0 technology, VS1 will generate clean, low-cost, dispatchable power with over 8 hours of thermal energy storage and would be the largest CSP Project executed in Australia.

Primero’s Executive General Manager – Project Delivery, Andrew Gordon, said, “We look forward to working on this exciting project, supporting Vast’s project team and other FEED contractors to combine our local expertise with world-class CSP experience for successful project outcomes and to continue supporting the decarbonisation of Australia’s energy grid.”
