Applied Energy Technologies (AET) announced that it has completed a 5MW solar installation project with Rosendin Construction Puerto Rico, in Juncos, Puerto Rico. The modules added to the project are Hanwha Q Cells 300W. The installation is expected to generate power to a Medtronic Pharmaceuticals site.
Aaron Faust, VP of business development for AET, said: “It is a privilege to be selected for another project in the Caribbeanand South American market. Our engineering team is earning its reputation for providing thorough analysis so that every component of a project is taken into consideration to ensure quality, while also keeping costs down for the customer.”
For this installation, AET’s engineering team had to account for 145 miles per hour wind load, a higher than average wind load for solar systems. Utilising AET’s Rayport-G ECO wind tunnel test, the company was able optimise the posts of the system to save on cost.
Ronald Hopgood, division manager of Rosendin, added: “AET was a clear choice for this project because of their experience in managing and delivering utility-scale projects. AET’s system is backed by their expert engineering and wind tunnel analysis, making their system an ideal fit for the unique site conditions of this project.”
