Infinia Corp. has begun commissioning and testing the first block of 64 concentrating solar power (CSP) units at the Tooele Army Depot, a U.S. Army ammunition storage and distribution facility in Utah.

The full CSP installation will incorporate a total of 429 of the company's PowerDish units in seven arrays and is expected to have a capacity of 1.5 MW. Infinia is working as a supplier to prime contractor CDM Smith on the program, which the Army says will cost $9.6 million.

‘We are excited to mark this milestone in providing the Tooele Army Depot with a long-term, dependable clean energy solution,’ says Infinia President and CEO Mike Ward, adding that the full CSP array will provide 30% of the base's electricity requirements.
