Bechtel has been selected by Sabanci Renewables to design and construct a 232MW (dc) solar plant in Victoria County, Texas. Bechtel will design and deliver the site, including engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and project management. Construction is set to begin early next year and be completed in mid-2025. Oriana Solar will include bifacial solar panel technology that enables both sides of the hardware to absorb sunlight.
The renewable power produced at Oriana Solar will be delivered to customers on the grid managed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas. Bechtel completed Cutlass Solar 1 for Advanced Power in January this year and recently passed the halfway construction point at Cutlass Solar 2 for Sabanci Renewables. “We’re delighted to expand our work with Sabanci to deliver a third renewable energy project for the people of Texas,” said general manager of Bechtel’s Renewables & Clean Power business Scott Austin. “We will be utilising Bechtel’s 125 years of delivery expertise on this project, and as always, look to employ local people and suppliers to build a facility that will power communities with clean renewable energy for decades to come.”
