One of the current challenges is building support structures that will last in corrosive soils. Galvanizing is not always an adequate method of protecting driven pilings. The goal of e-book is to give the reader a basic understanding of the corrosion process and how to interpret graphs from the AGA and AISI on the service life of galvanized steel. In addition, the e-book gives an overview of other industry’s practices to safeguard against corrosion, such as the California Department of Transportation.
Kern Solar Structures recently completed its contract with Blattner Energy providing 56,400 Kern Solar X-Piles™ for Solar Frontier Americas 106 MW Midway I & II Utility Scale Solar Project in Calipatria, CA just south of the Salton Sea. KSS was tasked with developing a coated steel pile that would provide high performance corrosion protection to […]
This one megawatt, solar structure system was installed at the forced-air fruit cooling facility in Firebaugh, CA to maintain their produce at optimum temperature. It uses the GroundMount™ solar mounting system to ensure a long-lasting solid solar structure.
