Behind the Scenes of the Development of a Utility-Scale Solar Farm


Date and Time:

Description:

It has been over six years since August Mack was involved in the development of the first utility-scale solar farm on a former Superfund site in the United States. Dubbed the Maywood Solar Farm, the 10.86 Megawatt farm sits on 43 acres at the former Reilly Tar & Chemical site in Indianapolis, Indiana.  August Mack assisted Hanwha Q CELLS USA (HQC) with U.S. EPA negotiations and IDEM negotiations, permitting, documenting current site conditions, and developing the civil design for the site. August Mack’s involvement with the site stems back to 1999, when they were contracted to clean-up the site, which included placement of a permeable soil cover as well as soil vapor and groundwater extraction systems.  The design for this development included pile foundations that would provide stability for the solar panels while minimizing disturbance of the underlying liner and soils. Design services included the site grading plan, storm water controls, and identification of existing utilities and buildings that would ultimately be removed from the site. August Mack also provided health and safety and civil construction oversight during the field portion of the project.
