ConDig (31-Aug–21) Dallas, Texas-based construction and infrastructure company Primoris Services Corp has secured two solar power contracts worth a combined value of over $120 million.
The first contract involves the engineering, procurement and construction of a utility-scale solar facility in the Southwest for an unnamed client.
Primoris said that the primary scope includes all civil, electrical and mechanical work. Initial construction on the project will begin in the third quarter of this year, with completion slated for the third quarter of 2022.
The second contract features engineering, procurement and construction of a utility-scale solar facility in the Midwest. The scope includes all civil, electrical and mechanical work. Initial work on the project is also expected to start in the third quarter of this year and completion is earmarked for the second quarter of 2022.
“These contracts are the realization of two projects we mentioned during our second quarter earnings call that were progressing under limited notices to proceed and are excellent examples as to why we have confidence in the balance of this year as well as into 2022,” said Tom McCormick, president and chief executive officer of Primoris.
“We have now executed three contracts in the last week for a combined total of over $220 million that add to our backlog in the Energy/Renewables segment and we have more to come.”
In May, Primoris said it had secured $525 million worth of utility contracts in the first quarter.
In March, Primoris announced that it had bagged a $40 million contract for the reconstruction of part of the Pali Highway on Hawaii’s island of Oahu.
