Primoris Services has secured an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a solar project with an estimated value of $260m.

The company’s energy and renewables segment has won the contract.

Primoris chief executive officer and President Tom McCormick said: “The organic growth of our utility-scale solar business is one measure of the success of our energy transition strategy.”

“With over 3,200 megawatts of solar power projects under construction currently in 2022, Primoris ranks as one of the leading EPC contractors in the space. This contract brings our year-to-date total of new solar business to more than half of a billion dollars.”

This EPC contract is for a utility-scale solar facility in the undisclosed southern part of the US.

Initial construction will start in the third quarter of this year, with completion anticipated in the fourth quarter of the next year.

Last month, the energy and renewables segment of Primoris also won a $130m solar project.

This EPC award is for a utility-scale solar facility, also located in the undisclosed southern part of the country.

Construction of the project will begin in the fourth quarter of this year, with its completion slated for the third quarter of 2023

McCormick had then said: “This project is another great example of our segments working together to provide a complete solution for our clients.”

“In addition to the photovoltaic work that our Energy/Renewables Segment will execute, our Utilities Segment will perform the high-voltage work.”
