Applied Energy Technologies (AET) completed a 5 MW solar installation project with Rosendin Construction Puerto Rico, LLC in Juncos, Puerto Rico. The modules installed for the project are Hanwha Q Cells 300W. The project will bring power to a Medtronic Pharmaceuticals facility.
“It is a privilege to be selected for another project in the Caribbean and South American market,” said Aaron Faust, VP of Business Development for AET. “Our engineering team is earning its reputation for providing thorough analysis so that every component of a project is taken into consideration to ensure quality, while also keeping costs down for the customer.”
For this particular project, AET’s engineering team had to account for 145 miles per hour wind load, a higher than average wind load for solar systems. With AET’s Rayport-G ECO wind tunnel test, they were able to optimize the posts of the system to save on cost, while upholding quality system engineering for the project. The system features a 2-high portrait design optimized for maximum panels and load tilt angle of 10 degrees.
“AET was a clear choice for this project because of their experience in managing and delivering utility-scale projects,” said Ronald Hopgood, Division Manager of Rosendin. “AET’s system is backed by their expert engineering and wind tunnel analysis, making their system an ideal fit for the unique site conditions of this project.”
AET’s Rayport ECO product portfolio includes both rooftop and ground mount racking solutions made of fully galvanized steel. Customers are able to save money and installation time with AET’s ECO line of lightweight and high quality solar mounting solutions.
