Fluor wins maintenance contract at Arizona solar power facility

Fluor Corp. won a five-year operations and maintenance services contract by Arlington Valley Solar Energy II (AVSE II), a member of LS Power Group, for the company’s new solar photovoltaic facility in Arizona. Fluor booked the undisclosed value into backlog in the first quarter of 2013.

The nominal 125 MW PV facility, which Fluor is currently constructing, is located on about 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.

Fluor Corp. has more than 40,000 employees. Headquartered in Irving, Texas, Fluor had revenue of $27.6 billion in 2012.
