Concentrated solar power contract awarded to Flour

17 February 2010 - Fluor Corporation said that Elecnor S.A. has awarded the company an engineering services contract for a new 50 MW concentrating solar power (CSP) plant in Badajoz, Spain. Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value in the first quarter of 2010. Fluor will provide detailed engineering and other associated services for the project. When complete, the 50 MW CSP generating facility will capture solar energy using parabolic trough mirrors and will ultimately convert the energy into electricity through a steam turbine generator.

The project is underway with engineering expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2011. Fluor's Asturias and Madrid, Spain, operations will lead the engineering effort with support from its southern California operations center. Fluor has been providing front-end support work to Elecnor for this project since early in 2009.
