Sukut Construction completed the civil site preparation in 2012 for the Mojave Solar Project, a 280 megawatt (MW) gross parabolic trough plant in the Mojave Desert, west of Barstow, California. Sukut demolished existing infrastructure, cleared the 1,765 acre site of vegetation and moved about 3.8 million cubic yards of earth. The project then called for construction of a drainage system consisting of soil cement lined channels, graded swales and three reinforced concrete box culverts. Finally, Sukut built site access roads and parking lots by placing 25,000 tons of base and asphalt concrete. This plant will produce enough energy to serve 54,000 households.
