Fluor Corporation completes LS Power’s new Centinela Solar Energy Facility

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation has 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-megawatt photovoltaic solar project will provide clean, renewable energy in the southwestern US.

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.

“The successful completion of this large solar facility is the result of a long-standing relationship and effective coordination between LS Power and Fluor. We are especially proud of the project team’s exemplary health, safety and environmental record,” said Matt McSorley, President, Power business, Fluor.
