US engineering giant Fluor has secured a five-year operations and maintenance contract for the 125MW Arlington Valley Solar Energy II (AVSE2) PV array, which it is building in Arizona for LS Power.

Fluor was awarded a lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the AVSE2 project in late 2011, and is on track to finish the project – among the world’s largest PV arrays – this year.

The deal would appear to mark Fluor’s first foray into long-term O&M work in the PV industry, with Matt McSorley, senior vice president of the company’s power business, saying: “We are pleased to expand our work in the renewable-energy market.”

Both projects have long-term off-take contracts Log in to read complete article.
