Fluor Corp. completes 170 MW solar power facility

Sponsored by

Fluor Corp. completed the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning for both phases of LS Power’s new Centinela Solar Energy Facility, one of the largest of its kind in the United States. Located near El Centro, California, the 170 MW photovoltaic solar project will provide renewable energy in the southwestern U.S.

Fluor provided the engineering and procurement services for the lump-sum project from its southern California operations center. LS Power and Fluor broke ground on the new facility in December 2012.

The construction of the renewable energy project provided hundreds of jobs to workers in the Imperial Valley region of southern California. The construction team installed a total of more than 875,000 solar photovoltaic panels on the 1,600-acre site.

Fluor completed the project safely, working more than 700,000 construction hours with no lost-time accidents. In addition to providing engineering, procurement and construction services, Fluor will also operate and maintain the world-class facility for the next five years.
