Project Scope

CA performed the layout and installation of 124 anchor posts for solar arrays at the Newark Reservoir. We also excavated and backfilled for the electrical conduit run from the existing transformer to the new solar equipment.

Key Challenges

The site was located in a floodplain that was especially difficult to work in after rain events, and the soil was soft and spongey. To address both challenges, Corrado American used a rolling matting system. This system provided safe and efficient access to install the posts and panels in the proper sequence.

The orientation of the solar panels and spacing of the rows within a tight site also required a high level of precision for our layout and driving of posts.
