US construction firm Signal Energy has been chosen to provide EPC services for a solar farm in Clark County, Nevada.
The company will provide construction and engineering services for the 30MW AC (37.5MW DC) Spectrum Nevada Solar Project, as well as civil infrastructure, mechanical assembly and electrical work.
SunEdison will operate and maintain the solar farm under a multi-year solar power purchasing agreement with NV Energy.
Ben Fischer, Signal Energy‘s President said: “Large utility-scale renewable energy projects are Signal Energy’s specialty, and we are honoured to be the EPC contractor for the Spectrum Nevada Solar project in Nevada. Our commitment to expert project management and construction allows us to play a leading role in igniting our country’s solar renaissance.”
Located just outside of Las Vegas, the solar farm will be equipped with 130,000 photovoltaic solar modules in 2,000 tracker rows.
The Mexican Array Technologies will provide the trackers for this project. The trackers for the Spectrum Nevada Solar Project can increase the generated electricity by more than 20%, Signal said.
Signal Energy has installed over 150MW large-scale solar projects the last three years from 2010. The company said it has plans for over 60MW solar projects while it has completed over 40 utility-scale renewable energy projects since 2005.
