PanAm 6 MW Solar Ground Mount System

Billerica, MA

Turning contaminated land into a clean energy generating facility, Conti transformed a once unusable space into a source of power for the neighboring community.

Conti installed the 6 MW array on a site containing and asbestos landfill and rocky terrain. This required different skill sets to ensure the array could be installed per design criteria without impacting the integrity of the landfill cap.

Conti utilized a combination ballasted and post-driven racking system developed by RBI Solar for this project. The array was constructed using JA Solar 345 and 350 watt modules and Sungrow string inverters. The location of the array contained high ledge rock, which presented challenges for the installation of foundations and underground wiring.

Conti managed 10 subcontractors in the implementation of this project, which included heavy clearing, earthwork import and site grading, solar array construction, fencing and medium voltage installation, all while meeting the owner’s schedule and budget.

Conti implemented a design for the post driven racking system to reduce the cost of the project for the owner. Instead of screw type posts, Conti executed a rock drilling operation allowing for installation of traditional driven posts, saving both time and money for the project.

Utilizing a rock drilling technic not commonly found in the solar industry, Conti executed this project on time and on budget.
