EMCOR Group Inc. says its Dynalectric Co. and Contra Costa Electric subsidiaries have begun work on building the electrical infrastructure for Renewable Energy Corp.'s (REC) solar-grade polysilicon manufacturing facility in Moses Lake, Wash.
Dynalectric and Contra Costa are providing the electrical systems and process instrumentation and controls for the project's fluid bed process. The work will consist of 136 miles of power wire, 100 miles of instrument wire, five miles of cable tray, four miles of instrument air and process piping, 5,000 instruments, and 1,500 lights along with the panels, transformers and other equipment needed to carry the power load from the site's new substation.
‘REC is one of the world's largest suppliers of solar-grade polysilicon, and they are a world leader in the development of the technology needed to produce it,’ says Michael Dias, president and CEO of Contra Costa Electric. ‘It is extremely gratifying to be involved in the creation of such a significant manufacturing facility.’
