Roserock Solar Facility
ROSEROCK SOLAR FACILITY
Pecos County, TX
McCarthy Building Companies manages the engineering, procurement and construction of the Roserock Solar Facility in Pecos County, TX, scheduled for commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2016. Once completed, Roserock is expected to generate enough solar energy to power the average energy needs of approximately 30,000 Texas homes. Southern Power and Recurrent Energy, solar developers, own the 157-megawatt Roserock Solar Facility.
A large scale project requiring 12 self contained solar powered pole stations to cover over 100,000 linear feet of fence, AISG installs the latest security technology comprised of video, access control, perimeter protection and remote monitoring at Roserock. Both communication and power are all provided by AISG at the edge eliminating trenching or the need for third parties to complete.
The solar facility is being built on 1,300 acres in Pecos County, TX. The site consists of approximately 700,000 photovoltaic solar modules around which AISG is installing a seamless and comprehensive security platform to insure uninterrupted power production. Access is controlled at the site via an Aiphone IP video intercom and locked gates at multiple points of site ingress/egress. High resolution IP video surveillance system for complete perimeter coverage uses Avigilon to integrate and manage Davantis video analytics with environmental Flir thermal and Axis Communications day/night infrared IP cameras installed throughout the facility. The system also includes a Wavestore VMS server. The fully equipped solar powered poles utilize industrial network switches and wireless adapters. In addition AISG is providing strobe/sirens at each pole to pinpoint and guide authorities upon events.
