Bechtel to construct 140-MW Cutlass Solar project in Texas
Advanced power selected Bechtel, an engineering and construction company, to complete EPC services for the Cutlass Solar Project in Fort Bend, Texas. The solar PV project will add 140 MWDC to the Electric Reliability Council of the Houston Zone, Texas.
“The Cutlass Solar Project represents the next chapter for our organization as we continue to build a sustainable energy future,” said Tom Spang, CEO of Advanced Power. “We are proud to have Bechtel on this journey and to build on existing solar energy expertise.”
The project is being built on 700 hectares of land and will employ more than 200 people at its peak. The solar park is scheduled for commercial operation in 2022.
“Millions of homes work in support of Advanced Power and are now powered by low-carbon alternatives,” said Kelvin Sims, general manager of Bechtel Infrastructure Americas. “We are delighted to continue this partnership to build sustainable solutions for communities and to meet our country’s energy transition goals.”
Bechtel Enterprises partnered with Advanced Power to develop the project. Cutlass Solar is the fourth project and the first renewable energy facility that Bechtel will provide for Advanced Power. The team is currently building the South Field Energy Facility in Ohio and previously completed the Cricket Valley Energy Center and the Carroll County Energy Facility using natural gas, a low-carbon energy source to help transition from coal.
“We are delighted to continue our long-term development partnership with Advanced Power and expand into renewable energy as we continue to transform and grow our clean energy business,” said Keith Hennessey, president of Bechtel Enterprises.
