Through effective coordination and diligent execution, LS Power and Fluor completed the EPC and commissioning for both phases of the Centinela Solar Energy Facility in August 2014.
Throughout the 1,600-acre project site, Fluor's construction team successfully installed a total of more than 875,000 solar photovoltaic panels, 15,000 tons of steel, 40 miles of cable tray, and 425 miles of AC and DC cabling.
Fluor completed the project safely by working more than 700,000 construction hours with no lost-time accidents and no recordable incidents. Fluor is now operating and maintaining the facility for the next five years.
The Centinela Solar Energy Project was named the 2015 Best Project Safety Award of Merit winner by Engineering News-Record (ENR) for the California region. Fluor was recognized December 1 at ENR's Best Projects Awards breakfast in Los Angeles.
