RBI Solar has supplied the racking for the 11.18MW-dc Kinsley Solar Farm in Deptford, New Jersey. The solar farm is part of Public Service Electric and Gas Company's (PSE&G's) Solar 4 All™ program and covers 32 acres of the closed Kinsley Landfill. Conti Enterprise was the EPC for this landfill project. RBI's in-house team of engineers worked with Conti to custom design a non-penetrating landfill racking solution that not only meets the wind and snow loading but also matched the financial requirements of the project.
Matthew Skidmore, Vice President at Conti, commented, "We continue to find success in the industry partnering with sophisticated solar developers, solar asset owners and electrical utilities to design and build large scale projects, and were very excited to again work with RBI on this opportunity. RBI's team provided exceptional support throughout the project and their racking solution for brownfields/landfills when ground penetration is not feasible allowed for an exceptionally efficient installation by our field crews."
RBI's new innovative and improved ballasted landfill racking was used to mount 36,841 Canadian Solar 300 Wp modules. A total of 3,495 pre-cast ballast blocks were used to pre-assemble the racking before shipping to the job site. RBI offers pre-assembly options to reduce the total project cost and ensure the quality control during installation. On certain projects, pre-assembly options can reduce the installation time as well.
"RBI landfill racking is designed to work with landfill contours and can be used with all module types. RBI landfill racking is tested by ETL to UL 2703 standards and is approved by Wiley to be used with its bonding and grounding solutions", states RBI's Sales Manager Pat Hudepohl.
