Overland Contracting Inc. (OCI), a wholly owned subsidiary of engineering and construction company Black & Veatch, has formed a strategic alliance with Schletter Inc., a provider of solar mounting systems, to serve the growing solar photovoltaic market.
Schletter produces ground-mount and rooftop solar mounting systems used in utility, commercial and residential solar applications. The collaboration will combine Schletter’s production experience with OCI’s engineering and construction knowledge to give clients a turnkey solution for large-scale solar PV deployments.
“Schletter is a recognized leader in providing the mounting systems that support the increasing use of solar technology to sustainably generate power,” says Tom Phillips, vice president and director of renewable energy at Black & Veatch. “Pairing their industry-leading racking solution with our reputation for the safe, effective and reliable construction of power projects will give our clients a significant advantage.”
“We believe this partnership will greatly benefit our clients, particularly those in the utility-scale sector,” says Dennis Brice, president and CEO of Schletter Inc.
