Invenergy Chooses White Construction to Build Two Ontario Solar Farms

H.B. White Canada Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of White Construction Inc., has been selected as the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor for Invenergy’s Sandringham and Woodville solar projects. When completed, these utility-scale solar facilities will consist of two 10-MW AC sites, both located in the city of Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada.

Each project will consist of fixed-tilt ground mount solar arrays with polycrystalline photovoltaic modules. The Ontario Power Authority will purchase the energy generated by the solar farms, under a long-term energy purchase agreement awarded under Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff program. Construction on both sites commenced in September, and is scheduled to be completed by August of 2013.

As the EPC contractor, H.B. White will engineer, procure, and construct the balance of system components as well as install the solar inverters and PV modules. The balance of system components include site preparation, security fencing, rack foundations, racking, DC wiring systems, AC collection system and the electrical switchyard.

In July of 2012, White Construction Inc. successfully constructed Invenergy’s 20-MW Grand Ridge Solar project, located in LaSalle County, Ill.

“The Grand Ridge Solar project was a success for both parties, and White Construction is very pleased to have the opportunity to continue our relationship with Invenergy as it further expands its solar portfolio,” said J.P. Roehm, White Construction’s Senior Vice President of Business Development.
