Amec Foster Wheeler Selects Trimark to Build Aggregated RIG at Largest Planned PV Power Station
Folsom/ Chatsworth/ Sunnyvale Calif. & Norfolk, VA – Trimark Associates, Inc. will install, test and commission an aggregated RIG (Remote Intelligence Gateway) and revenue meters for two new resources within the Mesquite Solar project. The photovoltaic power plant is being built in Arlington, Arizona with a planned capacity of 700 MW. Once completed, it will be the world’s largest photovoltaic (PV) power station.
Trimark will deliver to client and global engineering company, Amec Foster Wheeler, four CAISO (California Independent System Operator) – certified meters for each resource, which generate settlement quality meter data for billing and settlements. In addition, Trimark will deploy its CAISO-validated T1-S Gateway RIG™ to support secure real-time data telemetry. The RIG communicates data from generation to CAISO, fulfilling data telemetry requirements to participate in California’s electric markets.
Trimark will also be on the ground-level with Amec Foster Wheeler offering CAISO consulting and support through the metering and RIG approval process – critical insight that eliminates the guesswork from the path to interconnection.
Trimark’s expertise in delivering comprehensive PV power management solutions is visible in numerous, similar facilities across the United States including utility-scale solar sites Topaz (550 MW), Desert Sunlight (550 MW), and Solar Inverter Control’s for numerous generation resources ranging from 1 MW to more than 100 MW.
