AECOM Technology Corporation and Solar Power Partners (SPP) are to jointly build and operate solar power installations for the US Navy.

The AECOM-SPP team is one of the five companies that won the US Navy solar power contracts, which are worth up to $100m.

Under the five-year contract, AECOM will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for solar power systems, while SPP will finance and own the systems.

Solar power installations will be built at the navy and marine corps facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.
