Unirac Awarded Contract for 37.2 MW Ground Mount Steel (GMS) Installation in Guam

The solar array will offset 15,000 tons of CO2 emissions from fossil fuel generation and provide clean energy to power the equivalent of 12,000 homes annually.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 26, 2014 -- Unirac, Inc., a Hilti Group Company and the leading provider of high quality, competitive PV mounting solutions in North America has been selected by Sunora Energy Solutions and NRG Energy to provide a 37.2 MW Ground Mount Steel (GMS) mounting system to be installed on the island of Inarajan, Guam. The solar array will offset 15,000 tons of CO2 emissions from fossil fuel generation and provide clean energy to power the equivalent of 12,000 homes annually.


John Plumlee, CEO of Sunora cited "Unirac is an important partner for Sunora in helping us achieve our business strategy to bring unique solutions to large commercial, industrial and utility-grade customers. We trust Unirac's engineering capabilities; GMS is flexible with a proven installation base. The system is capable of meeting our rigorous design requirements while yielding a cost competitive solution, a critical element for this project when we selected Unirac."

GROUND MOUNT STEEL evolved from more than 10 years of experience in the fixed ground mount market to meet a variety of project requirements. Powerful light gauge structural steel components yield low material costs. Extremely low total installed costs are achieved through Unirac's innovative project construction methods with pre-assembled components. With more than 400 MW installed in North America, GMS is the system of choice for fixed-tilt commercial and utility ground mount projects.

"We are privileged to join with Sunora and NRG in advancing solar energy in communities across the country and abroad," said Peter Lorenz, Unirac CEO. "Our shared mission is to deliver high-quality solar solutions at the lowest total cost."
