Fluor to perform solar study in South Africa

Design, engineering and contracting firm Fluor has been selected to perform a study for a potential 5GW solar park development in the Northern Cape, for South Africa’s Department of Energy.

Following the recent completion of a pre-feasibility study by the Clinton Climate Initiative, Fluor will now develop a more detailed conceptual master plan, to be unveiled at the South African Solar Park Investors Conference on 28 and 29 October in Upington, Northern Cape Province of South Africa.

Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2010.
