JBH is completing the Mechanical Works Scope inclusive of tower boiler piping, interconnecting pipe including pumps and storage tanks, steam blows, and testing and commissioning support to this concentrated solar power (CSP) addition to Tucson Electric Power’s H. Wilson Sundt Generating Station. TEP’s Sundt Solar Boost Project will use Areva Solar’s compact linear fresnel reflector (CLFR) solar steam generators to produce up to 5 MW of power during peak demand periods. 

“The TEP Solar Boost Project is a joint venture in clean energy between AREVA and the Tucson Electric Power Company. It is potentially one of many SSGs (Solar Steam Generators) to come. AREVA has built these in Australia, India, California, and Nevada as well as the FAST project at Sandia Labs. Everyone on the JBH team is thrilled to be a part of this exciting project!”  - JBH PM Jeremy Byington
