Minneapolis-based Mortenson Construction has been selected by Tessera Solar as an official engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) partner for the design and construction of the company's solar projects.
Mortenson is currently building Tessera Solar's Maricopa Solar plant in Peoria, Ariz. The 1.5 MW project is scheduled to be completed in January 2010. Mortenson will also work on Tessera Solar's projects, which are expected to break ground late next year, including the Western Ranch project in west Texas and Calico-Solar One project in San Bernardino County, Calif., outside of Barstow.
The projects will utilize the SunCatcher power system manufactured by Tessera Solar's sister company, Stirling Energy Systems, which is headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz.
