Fluor Corp. has been awarded an engineering services contract by eSolar Inc. for the design of a 46 MW concentrating solar power (CSP) plant. Fluor will provide design optimization to rapidly scale eSolar's power plants. The contract, whose total value was not disclosed, was booked in the company's third quarter.
Fluor says its Southern California operations center is leading the effort on this project with an immediate start date. Fluor will perform detailed studies focused on optimizing performance, constructability and cost.
The work will include basic engineering for a reference plant design that will be used to provide a scalable design package to potential developers worldwide, the company adds.
