Polar Racking was selected to supply its CORE fixed tilt ground mount solar racking and ballasted foundations and complete a full mechanical installation of the solar projects.
Polar Racking, a North American supplier and manufacturer of solar mounting solutions, has been awarded the contract to supply CORE, its fixed tilt ground mount solar mounting solution, and ballasted foundations to two New York solar projects, Manlius and Geddes, by SolarBank Corporation, an independent renewable and clean energy project developer.
The two solar projects totaling 10 MW are repurposing two closed landfills, addressing two critical challenges, turning contaminated land into clean energy generating assets. Polar Racking was selected as the supplier and installer for these sites because of its ballasted foundation product line, designed to securely anchor fixed tilt and tracker solar racking solutions, and its experience supplying racking for landfill sites.
“We selected Polar Racking’s ground mount solar solution because of the innovative and proven engineering design that stands behind it,” said Andrew van Doorn, COO of SolarBank. “Companies like Polar Racking are extending boundaries of where we can safely build large-scale solar projects, supporting our goal to drive the energy transition forward.”
Polar Racking’s solar mounting solutions and ballasted foundations are designed to assemble quickly and adapt to varying terrain of solar projects.
“Polar Racking is thrilled to be supplying and constructing the two landfill solar projects in New York for a customer we’ve worked on over 20 projects with. We view this as a testament to our unwavering commitment to brownfield redevelopment and delivering top-quality solutions that meet the evolving needs of the solar industry,” said Vishal Lala, managing partner of Polar Racking. “This recognition affirms our expertise and validates the trust our customers and partners place in us as we work together to drive forward innovation in solar racking and mounting solutions, while offering the highest levels of customer service.”
