PV RACKING BREAKS INTO HAWAIIAN SOLAR MARKET

The new JPAC facility, located in Oahu, Hawaii, was designed by SmithGroup JJR to be a LEED Gold structure, complete with 484kW of solar power.

Southampton, Pennsylvania (10/14/2014) –PV Racking has teamed up with Photonworks Engineering, a Hawaii-based engineering, construction and energy solutions company, to outfit the brand new Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) headquarters building with solar carports. The new JPAC facility, located in Oahu, Hawaii, was designed by SmithGroup JJR to be a LEED Gold structure, complete with 484kW of solar power. The facility will be used to conduct global search, recovery, and laboratory operations to identify unaccountedfor Americans from past conflicts in order to support the Department of Defense's personnel accounting efforts.


The custom rails required for the JPAC project solar carports were designed by PV Racking engineers and measured in at just less than 28 feet long. "PV Racking has been quick to respond to our design and engineering needs throughout the ordering process. Their slide-in rail was great choice for the JPAC project carports," said Paul Orem, Senior Project Engineer at Photonworks Engineering. PV Racking initiated all rail manufacturing and anodizing capabilities in Oldsmar, Florida to accommodate the unique design. Barry Moore, president at PV Racking, commented "This is a very exciting project that we are proud to be a part of. Adding rail manufacturing capabilities in Florida will allow PV Racking to better serve not only the Hawaiian solar market, but the U.S. solar market as a whole."

The JPAC project has won Associated Builder's and Contractor's 2014 Excellence in Construction award for best LEED certified project.
