Dec 17, 2013 - US solar mounting products provider Unirac Inc said yesterday it had won a deal from Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc (RES Canada) to supply racking facilities for 20 MW of solar plants in Ontario.
Unirac, a unit of Hilti Group, will deliver two ground mount steel racking solutions, each for a capacity of 10 MW, as part of the deal. RES Canada, a subsidiary of UK-based Renewable Energy Systems (RES) Group, is taking care of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of two solar projects for project owner SunEdison Inc (NYSE:SUNE), former MEMC Electronic Materials Inc.
The photovoltaic (PV) projects will be implemented in two stages, the first of which was launched this autumn. Located between the towns of Westport and Newboro, the two solar plants are estimated to produce enough power for 4,000 Ontario households per year. They have 20-year power purchase agreements with the Ontario Power Authority. The plants are scheduled for completion next year.
