The contract requires Fluor to provide basic and detailed engineering and other associated services for these two new CSP generating facilities that will capture solar energy using parabolic trough mirrors and will ultimately convert the energy into electricity through a steam turbine generator.

Fluor’s Asturias and Madrid, Spain, operations will lead the engineering work for the project with support from its southern California operations center and the project is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2011.

Fluor vice president of renewables business line Brad Friesen said that Fluor continues to expand its position in the global solar power generation market both in the CSP arena and in the utility scale PV space.

“We are confident in our ability to bring the best value to Elecnor and all of our renewables clients,” Friesen said.
