In Venezuela, they insisted they were a construction company. Now, they just “intervene” in infrastructure projects, whatever that means. (My slightly edited Google translation below).

Solar farm installation ensures electricity savings in the municipality
With the installation of the first “Cajeme 10M Solar” panel farm in Ciudad Obregón, Mayor Rogelio Diaz Brown Ramsburgh placed the Municipality at the forefront of renewable energy policies nationwide.
That is by establishing a project in which a municipality and a drinking water agency are supplied by solar, starting one of the most momentous development schemes for the region.
“This farm will produce about 70 percent of the energy consumed by the Municipal Government, whether in public lighting, buildings, courts, public spaces, among others,” he said during his speech.
For two years he sought to attract this photovoltaic generation park…
Like other success stories of this administration, with this project, established molds are broken in the quest to become a self-sustaining municipality, he said.
In addition to saving 20 percent in energy expenditure by City Hall, he said, clean energy will be produced for a period of 20 years at a cost below that of the Federal Electricity Commission.
To realize this plan, he stressed, the investment of 25 million dollars from the company Zigor Mexico and Latam, and the intervention of the Derwick company have been necessary.
The event was attended by the federal manager Faustino Felix Chavez, the local deputy Rossana Coboj García; the Town Clerk, Antonio Alvidrez Labrado; director of Zigor Mexico and LATAM, Alfredo Garcia de Jalon; and Derwick vice president, Pedro Trebbau López, among other officials.
Good to see Derwick moving on from Venezuela’s empty piñata and finding new business development opportunities.
