Blattner Energy has selected SunLink Corp. to supply mounting solutions for two unidentified utility-scale solar plants in the U.S.: one in the Southeast and another in the upper Midwest. The companies say this expands on a partnership that has already seen several hundred megawatts of solar installed.
Blattner is the EPC contractor and self-performing the installation of modules, racking systems, foundations, inverters, collection, electrical and plant commissioning and start up. SunLink is supplying its mounting solution GeoPro on the two projects, which the company claims provides a flexible foundation design to accommodate extreme weather conditions.
“We take a great deal of pride in our relationship with Blattner,” says SunLink CEO Michael Maulick. “For SunLink, it is the perfect example of the way we strive to do business – collaboratively determining the ideal product and engineering solutions for every project site and delivering a level of service and support that helps our partners overcome obstacles and succeed. This approach was particularly important in the Upper Midwest, where utility-scale solar is still relatively new, and the environmental conditions pose a host of unique engineering challenges. Together, we created solutions that ultimately overcame these issues while at the same time controlling project costs – a real win-win.”
