BAE Systems, Inc is the U.S. subsidiary of BAE Systems plc, an international company engaged in the development, delivery and support of advanced defense and aerospace systems in the air, on land, at sea and in space. BAE purchased what used to be the FMC plant in Fridley, MN. The purchase included one of the most noted Super Fund waste sites in MN. The solar electric system was installed to offset power to the pump house that is used for ground water remediation at the site. The four dual axis trackers equipped with the highly efficient SunPower 230 watt modules will provide approximately 50% of the land fill’s annual electrical usage. The system included a unique radio frequency transmitter so that the system performance could be monitored in the facility managers office 1500’ away.
BAE issued a proposal request based on a ground mount design concept that ECI was not in support of. ECI suggested the trackers. None of our competitors could achieve the power density that we could achieve with our SunPower offerings. Competing proposals would have required six trackers to provide the kW installed capacity. Additionally, BAE needed the project complete in less than 6 weeks. Energy Concepts delivered the project in the necessary time frame.
