Arevon Energy, Inc., a renewable energy company, has chosen Bechtel, a US-based engineering, procurement, construction, and project management company, to design and build a new 190 MWac solar project in Posey County, Indiana.
CenterPoint Energy is to distribute the energy.
The new solar facility is likely to produce enough clean energy to power over 25,000 Indiana homes. It is to enable CenterPoint Energy to offer clean power to over 150,000 electric customers in Southwest Indiana. After completion, the Posey Solar Project is expected to contribute USD1.2m to Posey County's GDP per annum.
Bechtel is to head and deliver the turnkey solar project, which includes engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and project management. During construction, Bechtel is to employ over 300 people from the local area including electricians, operators, safety professionals, solar installers, and general laborers, and implement on-the-job training programmes for local community residents. Bechtel will also involve the regional supply chain in Indiana and the surrounding states during the implementation of the project.
