US renewable, environmental and thermal energy technologies provider Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc (NYSE:BW), or B&W, has secured contracts to install two solar parks with a combined capacity of 144 MW in the MidWest US.
The company announced the awards on Monday without disclosing the names of the assignors. The two deals were placed at its B&W Renewable segment and have a combined value of over USD 12 million.
Planning works on the two utility-scale solar projects are already in progress and completion is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2022.
Once in operation, the photovoltaic (PV) farms will be capable of generating electricity to supply more than 20,000 homes and businesses.
“As demand for clean energy solutions continues to grow, we’re optimistic about the ongoing growth of the North American solar energy market,” said B&W executive vice president and chief operating officer Jimmy Morgan.
