Fluor Corporation has been awarded an engineering services contract by Elecnor SA for two new 50MW concentrating solar power (CSP) plants in Alcazar de San Juan, Spain.

Under the terms of the agreement, Fluor will provide basic and detailed engineering and other related services for the two new solar units.

The two 50MW CSP generating facilities will track solar energy using parabolic trough mirrors to convert the energy into electricity through a steam turbine generator.

Fluor's Asturias and Madrid, Spain, will lead the engineering effort with support from its southern California operations centre.
