Centinela Solar — 170 MW Solar PV Power Plant Completed By Fluor In California

The 170 MW Centinela Solar power plant being constructed in El Centro, California, by the Fluor Corporation was recently completed, as per recent announcements.

The new solar PV power plant features over 875,000 solar panels, spread out over a 1,600-acre site in El Centro — located in Southern California.

The project — which, as previously mentioned, has been dubbed Centinela Solar — is owned by the independent power producer LS Power.

While the project is owned by LS Power, it will be operated and maintained by the engineering and construction firm that built it, Fluor Corporation. Fluor was also in charge of the procurement process for the project.

The project began construction back in December of 2012, and during its course provided hundreds of jobs for locals in the Imperial Valley.

The executive vice president of LS Power, John King, commented on the completion of the project: “Having achieved this important milestone, Centinela will serve California and the region with clean, renewable energy for decades to follow.”

Most recently, Fluor also finished construction on the 125 MW Arlington Valley Solar Energy II facility in Maricopa County, Arizona, for LS Power — back in 2013.
