Cupertino Electric and Amec Foster Wheeler have completed installation of photovoltaic (PV) modules at the 250MW Copper Mountain Solar 3 project in Nevada, US.

More than one million solar PV modules have been installed by the two companies for the fixed tilt, ground-mount project in Boulder City for Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and Consolidated Edison Development.

Amec Foster Wheeler construction vice-president Tom Dodson said: "We are delighted to have partnered with Cupertino Electric to leverage our global design, engineering and project management expertise to jointly deliver this prominent project to Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and Consolidated Edison Development."

Cupertino Electric chief commercial officer John Curcio said: "Having worked with Sempra US Gas & Power previously on its jointly-owned Copper Mountain 2 Solar project as an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) subcontractor, we were pleased to continue our successful run on this latest project."

Capable of generating enough electricity to power roughly 80,000 homes, Copper Mountain Solar 3 is the third phase of Copper Mountain Solar complex.

Power generated from the facility will be sold to Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the City of Burbank under an agreement signed with the Southern California Public Power Authority.
