Middle and Outer Reflectors for the Solar Industry

  • Kogan Creek B-Deck
The Kogan Creek Power Station, located in Queensland, Australia, is home to a 44 megawatt solar thermal addition that augments its electrical output and fuel efficiency. We were contracted to construct several components for this large installation.

Family-run and in business for more than 100 years, Corrugated Metals, Inc.’s reputation for quality has achieved a global reach, which has provided us with the opportunity to participate in many high-profile projects.

The scope of this project incorporated fabrication of approximately 2,618,000 square feet of materials over a 13-month period. We roll formed the solar reflectors pictured below from 24-ga ASTM grade 33 steel with a G90 galvanized finish. Featuring dimensions of 35” and 23” in width, 317.25” in length, and 1.50” in height, strategic inspection procedures, conducted in accordance with our ISO 9001:2008 quality program, assured their integrity.

Of principal importance was ensuring the safe, timely, and cost-effective shipment of these panels to Australia. Already familiar with ISPM 15 standards for packaging and shipping goods for export, we were able to readily navigate through the maze of international regulations as well as Australian customs rules and detailed labeling and documentation requirements.

The Kogan Creek Solar Boost Project is meant to showcase how renewable and conventional electricity generation technologies can be integrated. We were pleased to have an opportunity to broaden our experience in the environmentally-responsible solar market on such a large scale.
