Rummel Construction is currently working as a subcontractor for AMEC Foster Wheeler at Mesquite Solar 3. This project is located in Tonopah Arizona off of Elliott Road and 411th Avenue. The project currently employs over 100 people including Rummel employees and subcontractors. We anticipate more than 150 onsite at peak production. Mesquite Solar 3 is the second phase to be constructed for the Sempra Mesquite Solar power plant. Mesquite Solar 3 is a 150 MW power plant that is over 1,000 acres.

Rummel’s scope of work for this project includes 865,000 cubic yards of drainage excavation, 63,000 cubic yards of soil cement, five cast in place concrete box culverts, 38,000 tons of Rip Rap, and 470 acres of level-roll. The major earthwork for this job is scheduled to be completed mid-January 2016. Rummel will return between late spring and early summer of 2016 to resurface roads throughout the interior of the site.
