Mojave Solar is one of the large-scale projects that will enable the state of California to meet one-third of its energy needs with renewable sources by 2020.
Wood Group GTS has secured a USD 2 million contract for the installation of two GE A-14 steam turbines at the Mojave Solar Project (San Bernardino County, California, U.S.).
Wood Group is responsible for equipment installation at the 250 MW concentrated solar power plant (CSP), including precision alignment of the “center-line” between steam turbine and turbo-generator by ARB (Lake Forest, CA, U.S.).
Completion of Wood Group’s task will ensure smooth start-up of the CSP plant, minimizing the risk associated with the operation of high-speed rotating equipment, the company emphasizes,
Wood Group will perform final connections for successful operation of each turbine, rechecking all critical dimensions during the start-up and commissioning phase of both units.
“Mojave Solar is a high-profile project for ARB and California. We depend on the support of reliable partners to ensure timely delivery of the construction phase,” stated Tim Healy president of ARB Inc.
“We value our long-term relationship with Wood Group GTS and are confident of their ability to meet project deadlines.”
