Mortenson was selected by SunPower to build the 135.6 MWdc Quinto Solar project, located in Los Banos, California, in Merced County. The project covers approximately 1,000 acres of land.
Construction on the solar project began mid-July 2014 and was completed June 2015. Quinto Solar provides clean energy to power nearly 40,000 households.
The project team was presented with a few challenges that included an aqueduct crossing and bridge work. Mortenson self-performed multiple scopes of work including site civil, site demo, foundations, piles, mechanical installation and overall project management.
