Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twenty-Nine Palms, California
Cost: $3.4 Million
Duration: Nine (9) Months
Installed Modules: 2,464
Project Type: Carport
In 2009, Stronghold Engineering, Inc. was awarded and completed a contract to install solar shading systems across five (5) maintenance bays at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twenty-Nine Palms, California. The project was part of the Navy’s effort to reduce its carbon footprint and meet long term sustainable energy goals. This design-build solar photovoltaic project required the installation of more than 2,000 PV Modules on a fully operational and occupied marine facility. The grid tied system , now complete, generates more than 837,000kW for the base. Stronghold completed this project on a fast track basis with zero lost time incidents, on-time and within budget.
What They Say…
“The contractor delivered a high quality product, ahead of schedule, while maintaining a safe jobsite work environment, despite challenges introduced by the government during the design phase, which resulted in a late start for the construction phase.”
