Bechtel to build 110 MW PV project in California18. April 2012 | Applications & Installations, Industry & Suppliers | By: Becky Stuart
Bechtel has been awarded an EPC contract to undertake the 110 megawatt (MW) Catalina Solar Photovoltaic Generating Project by enXco. The company will also build the necessary transmission line.
The project will be located in Kern County, Southern California, across 1,100 acres. Pending final approval from the California Public Utilities Commission, construction is slated to start this May, and be completed in 2013.
"This large utility-scale project will help meet the growing demand for a mix of renewable energy sources," said Jim Ivany, president of Bechtel’s Renewable Power business group.
Bechtel is also currently working on two other large-scale solar projects. The first, the 392 MW Ivanpah concentrated solar thermal power project, is set to be one of the biggest systems of its kind when complete, while the second is the 250 MW California Solar Valley Ranch.
