Annapolis Renewable Energy Park Award of Major Subcontracts

Annapolis, MD ( 10-25-17) Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides and BQ Energy Director Tim Ryan jointly announced the award of major subcontracts to local firms for performance under the Annapolis Renewable Energy Park's solar energy facility project.  groSolar, based in Columbia, is the primary engineering, procurement, and construction firm for this cutting-edge solar project.  BQ Energy, with a local office in Towson, is the country’s leading developer of solar projects on closed landfills.


Awardees are:

·         Powercon Corporation, a woman-owned company in Severn, MD  will design, manufacture, and install seven medium voltage separate switchgear stations (a combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers, metering, and control equipment), enclosed in multi-bay weatherproof outdoor cabinets.  These will be the most technically advanced components of the Annapolis solar facility

·         Rommel Construction, located in Linthicum, MD will perform electrical work including medium voltage and low voltage AC, DC electrical, and electrical equipment placement and terminations and testing

·         Reliable Contracting Company, out of Gambrills, MD will perform civil and site work, including new roads on the site, erosion control, and the electrical medium voltage ducts.

·         McCrone, a woman-managed company in Annapolis, MD will oversee land planning and surveying work

·         McCauley Lyman, located in Edgewater, MD will be responsible for regulatory review and renewable energy legal services

Meanwhile, local small businesses are being sought for shuttle services, fencing, lunch truck service, site traffic control services, temporary bathroom facilities, water delivery and providing project employee accommodations.

Mayor Pantelides said, “I encouraged an AREP solicitation and included a special small business and jobs outreach program for local employment and small business engagement including minority, veteran, and women owned small businesses. This was an important aspect of the AREP solicitation. I wanted to ensure that this clean renewable energy project benefits both the local environment and the local economy.”
