DynoRaxx Awarded 2-MW Solar Project at Cummins Engine Plant

Cummins Inc. Jamestown Engine Plant (JEP) in New York is scheduled to have a 2-MW roof mount solar array installed later this year, complete with a DynoRaxx Mounting System.

The DynoRaxx Evolution system can be seen on a flat rooftop. The four-legged basket acts as a spacer in between rows.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this large-scale project,” said Nathan Rizzo, President of Buffalo-based DynoRaxx. “The fiberglass material makes our mounting system lightweight, yet rugged enough for Upstate New York weather. Our patent pending DynoSlide design is completely tool-less which means installations can be completed in record time.”

The DynoRaxx product line was introduced to the market at Solar Power International (SPI) in 2011. The mounting system has generated tremendous interest in the fast-paced solar industry and is viewed as a product that is in a league of its own.

Cummins Inc. JEP Director of Manufacturing Engineering and Facilities Randal Myers said, “We’re pleased to see that the DynoRaxx system will be part of the 2-MW solar system upon our 1 million square foot roof. Environmental sustainability is a Core Value for Cummins. This sustainability commitment has been demonstrated in meeting the stringent emission requirements for the heavy duty 11, 12 and 15 liter diesel engines produced at JEP as well as reducing energy usage within the operation. Generating a significant amount of renewable energy at the facility is an exciting opportunity.”
