Trimark chosen to handle SCADA operations for world’s largest solar + storage project

Trimark Associates announced the company was chosen to handle SCADA operations for the Edwards & Sanborn project, the world’s largest solar + storage project currently under construction. Located in Kern County, California, the finished project will include 1,118 MW of solar and 2,165 MWh of energy storage.
The project is owned by Terra-Gen, while Mortenson Construction acts as the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractor for both the solar and storage. Terra-Gen and Mortenson selected Trimark as a subcontractor for the SCADA portion of the project, which also includes meteorological stations, networking equipment, and a Dynamic Loss Compensation (DLC) system to address Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) requirements. Trimark will also provide complex metering, including CAISO-compliant revenue meters (under a separate contract with Electrical Consultants Inc.).
The latest in a long line of utility-scale PV+BESS SCADA installations under Trimark’s care, Edwards & Sanborn is a massive undertaking, but one that Trimark’s talents are perfectly suited for.
“We’re very proud that Terra-Gen has placed their confidence in Trimark to provide our expertise and skills to control and monitor Edwards-Sanborn, which will be the largest project of its kind in the world. Terra-Gen has relied on Trimark for the last 20 years, and can rely on our team to make them a success for the next 20,” said Mark Morosky, Trimark’s president and CEO.
The design phase is already underway, with installation planned for the beginning of June. The process will be a long haul, more so than most: site construction just started this month, and is expected to be completed sometime in Q4 of 2022.
