Phoenix Solar secures EPC contract for 19.6 MW Texan solar plant

Phoenix Solar, a subsidiary of Phoenix Solar AG, has been chosen by renewable energy company Apex to engineers, procure and construction (EPC) a 19.6 MW solar plant in Texas, U.S.

The facility, once complete, will provide clean solar energy for the nearby U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hood in Killeen, and will be hooked up alongside the Cotton Plains wind plant in Floyd County, which is also being developed by Apex and will deliver low-cost clean energy to the Army base.

"Apex is among the most active companies in the U.S. renewables market, providing energy solutions for the corporate and public sector markets," said Phoenix Solar AG CEO Tim P. Ryan. "We are very pleased to contribute our EPC to the solar part of their projects."

The Fort Hood project will be Phoenix Solar’s first in the state of Texas, and also its first dabble in constructing part of a hybrid renewable energy plant in the U.S.
