Tucson Electric Power Company- Mechanical Works

Areva Solar/Tucson Electric Power

JBH completed 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 uses 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 Solar Steam Generators (SSGs) to come. AREVA has built these in Australia, India, California, and Nevada as well as the FAST project at Sandia National Laboratories.
