Swinerton Renewable Energy has been awarded engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts for the 250 MW by K Road Moapa solar plant.

Under the first contract, Swinerton will serve as the design-build contractor undertaking the engineering, construction and equipment procurement for the project. In addition, a second contract was executed for Swinerton to operate and maintain the solar plant for ten years with a performance generation guarantee.

The K Road Moapa Solar Project is located on the Moapa Paiutes' Tribal land 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas. It will supply power to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power under a 25-year supply contract.

The company says it will begin engineering design and access roads for the project immediately and expects to break ground in June. The plant is expected to be commissioned in multiple phases, with the ability to produce and deliver energy as early as May 2014.
