Mineral County, NV - Luning Solar ProjectTurnkey Civil and Structural Engineering
SOA worked as a subcontractor to Phoenix Solar United States to provide initial through final civil and structural plan sets for this 70MW project.
SOA engineers and hydrologists completed an in-depth analysis of 25 and 100 year flood events for the site that included watershed delineation, hydrologic and hydraulic routing, and hydraulic structure design. Hydraulic structure design accounted for the 100-year rainfall event in order to minimize infrastructure risk during periodic high-flow events.
Civil and structural engineering covered all grading, drainage, roadway, fencing, and equipment foundation design. SOA provided construction support for all applicable services, communicating directly with the contractor when necessary.
Permits were applied for and obtained from the State of Nevada, Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), Mineral County, and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The project entered construction in July 2016, with an estimated project completion of EOY 2016.
