Abengoa Selected To Design And Construct One Of The Largest Photovoltaic Plants In The USA

SEVILLE, Spain, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Abengoa, the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainable development in the energy and environment sectors, has been selected to carry out the engineering, construction and start-up of one of the largest photovoltaic plants in the world, which will be located in the USA and will have a capacity of 200 MW.



The plant, which will be constructed in Imperial Valley, south central California, will be one of the most important projects in the region. Abengoa has reached agreements with various local firms in order to promote the economic development of the region.
