By Editor


Blymyer Engineers, a design firm for utility scale solar projects, announced it has been chosen by Swinterton Builders as the engineering firm of record on the Springbok 2 Solar Farm in California.

The full three phase project involves developing a 350 MW AC PV solar generating facility covering approximately 2000 acres of formerly underdeveloped grazing and ag lands over multiple project sites in an unincorporated portion of eastern Kern county.

Blymyer Engineers has already provided engineering for the 105 MW Springbok 1 project.

The Springbok 2 solar farm is a 150 MW AC photovoltaic system utilizing ATI single axis trackers, SMA Sunnycentral 2200 inverters, and Trina TSM 315 watt PD 14 modules.

When fully operational the three part solar facility will operate year round and provide electricity to meet the needs of approximately 170,000 households.

Power will be transmitted to the grid via one or more generation tie lines connecting to the LADWP Beacon Substation.

Blymyer Engineer will be responsible for preparing the PV syst report, site plans and general arrangement drawings for the system, and complete electrical design including the electrical site plan, single line diagrams, trench layout, detailed design, grounding design, electrical equipment, wire and conduit sizing, plus the interface for the data acquisition system.

Additionally Blymyer Engineers is working on structural designs including inverter foundations and single axis tracker foundations.
