Finding reliable talent for a utility-scale solar farm construction project

How ENGIE, a global leader in sustainable energy solutions, began construction on a 200-megawatt utility-scale solar farm in Anson, Texas

Installation engineers working on solar farm project moving solar panels into place

In November 2019, ENGIE - a global leader in sustainable energy solutions - began construction on a 200-megawatt utility-scale solar farm in Anson, Texas. As ENGIE staffed and began the project, a clear challenge emerged requiring extensive quality assurance inspectors they didn’t have on the team.

To complete the project safety against a tight timeline, ENGIE needed a staffing firm with a strong track record of delivering candidates who have the requisite experience. ENGIE turned to SThree.

We are a leader in staffing renewable energy projects across all solar industry market sectors. Our pipeline of pre-vetted individuals with the requisite skill sets for renewable energy construction jobs ensures candidate reliability by providing:

  • Industry-specialist screening
  • Thorough reference checks
  • Competency and technical screening
  • Comprehensive post-placement services

Because of SThree’s vetting and job matching, its workers understand job requirements and have the capabilities required to lead projects to completion.

Beyond finding ideal candidates, SThree offers back-office assistance, including payroll services and legal and insurance support. Furthermore, SThree’s Enhanced Services offering ensures workers arrive on site with the vehicles, PPE, training and tools needed to perform their jobs effectively.

“SThree mobilised people quickly for the project with the experience we needed. The workers we hired through SThree were reliable and able to hit the ground running with vehicles and gear.” – ENGIE Project Manager

The unique combination of handpicked talent and enablement services was essential in getting the right staff in place quickly to support the inspection and activity ramp up on the Anson Solar Project. In January 2021, the project successfully came online as scheduled.
