Energy resiliency and microgrid solutions provider Go Electric announces it has been awarded a contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers to develop a mobile microgrid solution for the military.
ANDERSON, IN, November 7, 2017 — Go Electric Inc., a provider of energy resiliency and microgrid solutions, today announced it has been awarded a $297,769 contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers Construction Energy Research Lab (CERL) to develop a portable, modular, self-forming microgrid solution for use in harsh mobile applications.
The system will provide supply-side energy management by integrating multiple energy sources - including engine-driven generators, renewable energy assets and host-nation/shore power with battery energy storage into a self-forming microgrid. The system will seamlessly integrate, manage and optimize all 50 or 60 Hz AC sources such as commercial and military generators to include AMMPS/DSC synchronizing generators and non-synchronizing TQG generators.
This contract is the fourth deployment of Go Electric's patented AutoLYNC® microgrid control technology for military microgrid projects. Contracts have also been awarded to Go Electric for microgrid installations at SPIDERS/Camp Smith, Hawaii; Tooele Army Depot, Utah; and Ft. Custer, Michigan.
"We are leveraging our experience from successful deployments at stationary microgrid projects into a portable, ruggedized solution," said Lisa Laughner, CEO of Go Electric. "This solution is poised to support not only military facilities world-wide, but will also serve as an energy resiliency solution for disaster relief."
