Bechtel Recognized for Excellence in Solar Power Industry

12 July 2011 SAN FRANCISCO, California

Company Named Concentrated Solar Power Contractor of the Year

Bechtel has been named EPC Contractor of 2011 by CSP Today, a leading information organization focused on the concentrated solar thermal power (CSP) industry.  The award recognizes Bechtel’s leadership in the CSP industry and its role as the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor for the Ivanpah project—a 392MW plant under construction in California’s Mojave Desert.

Ivanpah is the most significant CSP project ever undertaken, and it has fostered the imagination and innovative thinking of many at Bechtel,” said Ian Copeland, president of Bechtel’s Renewable Power business. “We are proud to be building Ivanpah for NRG and BrightSource and are humbled by the recognition from our peers in the CSP industry.”

In addition to its work on Ivanpah, Bechtel’s expertise in the renewable power industry is evident in an array of projects including the Solar Two CSP solar power plant and the Kerman Photovoltaic solar facility.
