Southeast US Getting 148.5 MW Solar PV Project

August 17th, 2015 by  

The energy generation contractor Blattner Energy has chosen SunLink Corporation as project partner on a new 148.5 megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) project currently being developed in the southeastern US, according to a recent press release.

SunLinkAs part of the partnership, SunLink Corporation will be providing an extensive number of engineering and project management services, as well as its Large-Scale GMS Landscape mounting system technology.

“It takes proven engineering solutions, sophisticated products and a higher level of project-related services to support our nation’s largest solar projects. Our partners turn to us because we deliver on all three counts, and they attest that we shine when it comes to utility-scale solar system optimization and valued project services,” stated Michael Maulick, CEO of SunLink. “Blattner selected SunLink based on our demonstrated ability to accommodate the many demands associated with complex projects, coupled with our ability to help our partners overcome obstacles and deliver a superior customer experience. Together, our shared dedication to quality outcomes helps us both operate more competitively in the market.”

With the completion of the solar project, Blattner’s North American renewable energy portfolio will total more 25,000 MW (25 GW), represented primarily by solar and wind energy projects. A fair portion of these projects are in the southeastern US, representative of the fact that the region is currently one of the country’s fastest growing solar markets.

“Blattner prides itself on creating a better construction experience for our clients, and a cornerstone of that mission is building successful relationships with our project partners,” stated Scott Blattner, president of Blattner Energy. “SunLink brings a solid technology platform to the table. More importantly, their responsiveness, support and genuine desire for project success align with our commitment to delivering exceptional client service.”
