IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it was awarded a five-year operations and maintenance services contract by Arlington Valley Solar Energy II, LLC (AVSE II), a member of LS Power Group, for the company’s new solar photovoltaic (PV) facility in Arizona. Fluor booked the undisclosed value into backlog in the first quarter of 2013.
“Fluor is looking forward to continuing our work on the AVSE II project as we complete the construction phase and move into operations and maintenance,” said Matt McSorley, senior vice president of Fluor’s Power business. “Fluor has a 35-year legacy of providing O&M services to our customers in the Power sector, and we are pleased to expand our work in the renewable energy market.”
The nominal 125-megawatt PV facility, which Fluor is currently constructing, is located on approximately 1,160 acres of land in Maricopa County, Arizona. When complete, the facility will supply renewable energy for the region and help reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
In October 2011, AVSE II awarded Fluor a lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to design and build the facility. Fluor is also responsible for the EPC of the Centinela Solar Energy Facility, also owned by LS Power Group, in Southern California.
