Bechtel providing EPC services for California Valley Solar Ranch  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Bechtel (Frederick, Md.; www.bechtel.com) has received full notice to proceed for construction of the California Valley Solar Ranch (CVSR) project, one of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) plants being built in the world. Bechtel is providing engineering, procurement, and construction services for the 250 megawatt (MW) facility located in San Luis Obispo County, north of Los Angeles. "Upon completion, the California Valley Solar Ranch will produce clean, renewable energy to meet the power needs of approximately 100,000 homes. Equally important, it will be built with minimal impact to the land and habitat," says Ian Copeland, president of Bechtel’s Renewable Power division. "We are honored that SunPower Corp. selected Bechtel to deliver this world-class, large-scale solar facility that will advance the renewable energy industry." Bechtel began working on the site in August under a limited notice-to-proceed agreement. Construction of the facility is scheduled to take approximately two years. In addition to its work on CVSR, the company is currently building the Ivanpah project in the Mojave Desert which is the largest concentrated solar thermal power (CSP) facility ever undertaken.
