RP Construction Services, Inc. (RPCS) and RECON Corporation announced earlier this week their partnership to build 8 MWdc of solar tracker projects in Illinois this year. RECON Corporation, a solar photovoltaic EPC contractor based in Michigan, will be building three ground mount solar tracker projects, utilizing the DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar tracker from leading solar tracker manufacturer Array Technologies, Inc.
“RECON has completed many projects with RPCS using Array DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers and is pleased to partner with them on these projects,” says Scott Walker, President of RECON Corporation. “RPCS and RECON work together well to design and build a quality final product that meets or exceeds the owner’s requirements and expectations.”
RPCS is a partner of Array, handling turnkey design, supply and builds as a subcontractor. With more than 500 completed projects throughout the United States, RPCS provides full turnkey service and support, including site layout optimization, ancillary engineering services, tracker supply, foundation post procurement, and complete mechanical installation. As a trusted partner of leading solar tracker manufacturer Array Technologies, RPCS’s history, experience, and product knowledge provides customers with a trusted choice for seamless portfolio execution.
The majority of RECON’s current workload is EPC consisting of engineering, procurement and construction with in-house onsite supervision and some in-house mechanical installation. RECON Corporation has expanded dramatically in the last year. Growing from a few simultaneous projects to over a dozen currently in progress, RECON nearly doubled its annual installation rising from 27.655 MW in 2018 to 47.936 MW in 2019.
