Quanta Services has announced that it has secured a contract to provide comprehensive engineering, procurement and construction services for a project developed by Samsung C&T America. The 20MW solar installation for SPS Atwell (partly owned by Samsung) will be located near Alpaugh, Tulare County, US.
The Atwell Island Solar Generation Facility Project, to start at the end of this month, is expected to be completed in August 2012. It is hoped the project will be a significant contributor to the local community through the creation of local jobs and the generation of clean, renewable power.
“We look forward to showcasing our industry-leading EPC capabilities on this project, and are excited to play a significant role in making this project for Samsung a success,” said Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services.
