Project Overview

Vast Solar is developing VS1, a 30 MW Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant located in Port Augusta, South Australia.  The CSP plant gathers solar energy during the day, stores it as heat in the molten salt tanks, then when required, uses the stored heat to make steam to drive a turbine to generate electricity.

VS1 will use Vast Solar’s world-leading modular tower CSP technology to generate clean, low-cost, dispatchable power available on demand, catalysing an export-focussed renewables manufacturing industry and creating employment and contracting opportunities during the two-year project build and 30 years of operations and maintenance.

Port Augusta has long been recognised by Vast Solar and others as an ideal location for CSP thanks to its quality solar resource, strong electrical grid, local industrial use-cases, and sizeable and growing support for CSP from the community.  Located 20 km north of Port Augusta along the Stuart Highway, VS1 will be within the Aurora Energy Project precinct.

Expression of Interest (EOI)

Vast Solar encourages local industry interested in supplying to the project to register an expression of interest (EOI) through the ICN Gateway webpage.
Information on specific supply opportunities will be communicated on the ICN Gateway project page as it becomes available, with local industry able to register its interest against them.
Please ensure that:
·    Your company profile on the ICN Gateway is complete, up-to-date and accurate including electing to be notified via e-mail of supply opportunities
·    You register your interest as a full or partial scope supplier (where applicable), and
·    You respond to all project and work package-specific questions.
It is important that businesses submitting an EOI are aware that their submission does not guarantee that they will progress further in the procurement process. Only companies that can demonstrate capability and capacity in accordance with the project requirements will be invited to pre-qualify for specific opportunities.

Submit your EOI by Dec 31, 2022
