5-MW CPV Solar Array
Spanning 39 acres in the Southwest United States, the 5-MW solar array consists of 84 concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) machines on a ground mounted, dual-axis tracking system. Upon completion, this solar energy center was the largest CPV project in North America.
Blattner Energy’s scope of work on the project included: site development and earthwork; foundation installation; module installation including dual-axis tracking system, mega modules, and controls; installation of the underground collection system; installation of the communication network (SCADA), substation construction; and construction of the operations and maintenance buildings.

Throughout the project lifecycle, Blattner provided cost savings through multiple value engineering initiatives. These included providing alternate designs for the O&M building, a redesign of the earthwork for the project site, a collaboratively redesigned ground grid at the substation, and offering a redesign of the collection system.
