Solar Energy Project

Location: north of Interstate-10, in Riverside County, California

Sited on 1,800 acres of public land administered by Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Genesis solar energy project is located north of Interstate-10, in Riverside County, California. The project is a 250-megawatt solar energy plant as is one of the largest in the nation, capable of generating enough electricity to power nearly 88,000 homes, and avoid approximately 330,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually compared to a natural gas power plant.

The Genesis Solar Project uses proven concentrating solar power technology where solar collectors capture and concentrate sunlight to heat synthetic oil, which then heats water to create steam. The steam is piped to an onsite turbine-generator to produce electricity. The solar thermal technology will provide 100 percent of the power generated by the plant. No supplemental fuel for electricity production is needed.

ARB was awarded and completed ahead of schedule all the contracts for the solar field mechanical and piping including the installation of all the JIGs in the assembly hall, erection and alignment of all Pylons; assembly, installation, and leveling of all Solar Collector Elements (all 22,000 of them).

Our scope of work also included assembly of all HCE triple joints, and field installation of loop piping, Header Piping Underground Utilities, and common area piping and mechanical.
