Infinia Begins Testing First Array At Tooele Army Depot

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.
