AREVA Solar/Tucson Electric Power Sundt Solar Booster, Arizona

< Back to projects

Client: AREVA Solar
Location: Tucson, Arizona, USA

POWER Engineers provided multidiscipline engineering design to connect a solar steam generator (SSG) to the existing 400 MW coal-fired H. Wilson Sundt Generating Station. When constructed, the Sundt Solar Boost Project will help offset up to 5 MW of coal power production with solar thermal energy when running at full capacity, equating to 3,750 tons of coal per year. The project is helping Arizona meet its Renewable Energy Standard for electric utilities to increase the use of renewable power each year until it accounts for 15% of power in 2025.
