Fluor Corp. has won the engineering services contract for a new 50MW concentrating solar power (CSP) plant in Badajoz, Spain. Spanish energy firm Elecnor is owner of the project, which will use parabolic trough technology. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed. Fluor will provide detailed engineering and other associated services for the project.

“With the increasing demand to supplement the world’s energy supply with solar and other renewable forms of energy, we believe we are well positioned to meet the needs of clients like Elecnor,” said Dave Dunning, president of Fluor’s Power Group. “Concentrating solar power technology has gained momentum in Spain and throughout the world, and we believe our global engineering expertise and resource base for clean energy projects adds exceptional value.”

The Badajoz project is currently underway with engineering expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2011. Fluor’s Asturias and Madrid, Spain, operations will lead the engineering effort with support from its Southern California operations centre.

Fluor has been providing front-end support work to Elecnor for this project since early in 2009.
