Nextronex, Inc. Announces 2 MW Project in Bryan, OH & Start-up of 600 kW Project at Camp Perry, OH

Nextronex, Inc. is pleased to announce that Rudolph Libbe, Inc. has selected the Ray-Max® Power Island™ solar inverter system for their 2 MW project in Bryan, OH.

"This is a great vote of confidence for the Ray-Max® system and Nextronex," said Bruce Larsen, CEO. "Rudolph Libbe has recognized the value of our higher energy output performance in previous projects and continues to support our small company at a time when others are more concerned about bankability than higher rates of return on their solar investment. They truly are technological leaders."


The 2 MW Power Island will consist of Ray-Max® inverters, Power Strips™, Smart Controller™, Homerun Breaker Boxes™, and Load Centers utilizing Nextronex Patent Pending technology. The unique characteristics of the system allow for a one pad installation located mid-array versus perimeter mounting. This inverter system placement allows for the lowest level of DC losses, lowest installation cost, and maximum AC power generation.

Jason Slattery, Rudolph Libbe Solar Business Manager, commented, "We are pleased to continue our relationship with Nextronex and are convinced they are on to something really important to the solar industry. On completion of this project we will have over 3 MW's of Nextronex equipment operating in 3 separate projects. We're convinced the system really does generate more energy than commodity central inverter systems."

This news comes simultaneously with the successful commissioning of a 600 kW Nextronex inverter system for Camp Perry, OH.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
