Synchronized pile driving is not Olympic, but we had a tight schedule as the system needed to be done at a certain day in April, so we pushed it! The soil conditions were not favorable so we had to deal with refusals, but it all worked out.
Adjacent to farm fields on one side and a safety rest area on the other, the Baldock Solar Station is a 1.75dc Megawatt solar array at the French Prairie Safety Rest Area (formerly Baldock), south of Wilsonville on Interstate 5 in unincorporated Clackamas County. The 6,994 panel array sits on about seven acres of ODOT property on the east side of the northbound rest area, producing approximately 1.97 million kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable, homegrown energy annually.
Faster , faster , faster , but at the same time we need the precision otherwise the project will suffer the consequences later on. Like the old saying : " You need a strong foundation to built a long lasting house"
Inspection and maintenance - why - things break and things need to be maintained. Especially Outdoors! We are the boots on the ground that is why we call it I&M as we are not necessarily doing the O -Operation!
Rio Rancho public schools have completed two ground-mounted solar arrays at Cleveland and Rio Rancho High Schools. Each system is approximately 1,200-kilowatts and consists of more than 4,000 solar panels. Together they are expected to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 632 passenger cars off the road.
What became a successful project - started literally "rocky" - we saw quit some refusals which had to be mitigated in a timely fashion.
It is very gratifying for all project members to see the finished product. At that time you forget all the nights you had to deal with the elements, animals, break ins, thefts, vandalism, technical difficulties and the schedule.
It's not easy when the temperature is -4, you have snow on the ground and the schedule is tight. Then you have to come up with a different game plan to stake the points , string the rows and get the project going.
To get the ball rolling on a Ground-Mount Solar installation you need to conduct a test loading procedure to evaluate the load bearing capacity of the ground besides other factors. See what we did for this client.
A sea of 4,354 solar panels installed at a former rock quarry just outside northwest Novato is expected to begin powering 300 homes in 30 days. The project stands at 6.5 feet tall on 11.5 acres of the 952-acre quarry where serpentine rock was once mined. This Nextracker install had some challenges but we were able to make it work and complete the project within the given time frame - see more.
Mounting Systems collaborated with Sunstall Inc., the experts in solar pile driving, towards the completion of the on-site installation of Mounting System’s ground mount system for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and operated under solar contractor Juwi of Boulder, CO, who developed and oversaw the construction of the PV project.
