Cotton Center Solar Plant
Gila Bend, AZ United States | 2011
In recent years the push to go green has included everything from lowering ones water usage, to using more environmentally friendly household cleaning supplies. Alternative energy power sources have now been added to this new way of cleaner, safer, renewable living. Solar farms, which use naturally reoccurring elements in the environment to create power, almost immediately lower energy costs and greatly reduce harmful CO2 emissions.
Hot-dip galvanized steel beam piers now have a greater demand in the green community as more solar farms are erected. Serving as the base for each solar panel on this project is a steel beam which is placed deep into the ground. Hot-dip galvanizing was the preferred corrosion protection method for this project because it falls in line with the effort to use environmentally friendly, long lasting products. This expansive solar power farm project called for 22,000 hot-dip galvanized steel beam piers, weighing a total of 2, 453 tons. This time sensitive job was completed in three months, producing the customers desired quality, service, and turnaround time. The steel beam piers will be protected from corrosion and remain maintenance free for 75 years or more.
