|Sims-Durkin & Assoc. participated
in the design, construction, and testing of this solar
photovoltaic project located at the Indianapolis
International Airport (IAA).
The complete system is capable of generating 12.5 million
watts of DC (direct-current) power or 10 million watts of AC
Design duties for this job included: site layout of PV
panels, AC power distribution work, ambient temperature
cable de-rating calculations, instrument and controls, and
arc flash and short circuit studies.
In 2012, at the time of its completion, this project was the
largest solar array plant successfully constructed in the
State of Indiana.
This project was the first of many alternative-energy solar projects located
at IAA, other phases are currently under design.
Sims-Durkin & Assoc. worked in conjunction w/ Cenergy
Power on this project. Cenergy Power has a long history of
design-build engineering services on both the commercial and
utility side of alternative energy solar power.
