With growing concern for environmental protection and natural resource replenishment, global demand for renewable energy alternatives has increased. Exploration, expansion and innovation in hydroelectricity and solar heating have intensified, as have newer technologies in geothermal and ocean energy, and wind power. Each presents unique environmental challenges, whether it is extreme heat or the remote location installation required for wind and solar facilities.
Whether your project involves solar power generation in photovoltaic (PV) installations or concentrating solar power (CSP) farms, Lectrus builds and integrates customer-supplied inverters, combiner boxes, transformers and switchgear into efficiently designed, mobile inverter and control modules.
Equipment at a wind farm, for example, must constantly monitor and regulate power output of turbines, then manage distribution to local electric power transmission networks. Protection for switchgear is a high priority, whether traditional air-break or gas insulated switchgear is used. And of course, numerous relay panels also play a big part in the process. Lectrus designs and builds preassembled collector and interconnect substation control buildings for the wind industry on a regular basis.
In addition, Lectrus has earned us the reputation as the industry’s finest manufacturer of custom-built generator enclosures and accessories. While our product and service offering is considerable, we thrive because each customer has specific enclosure needs. Our staff of customer-focused degreed engineers and designers are experts in structural and acoustical design and have considerable experience in power systems integration. Integrating generator sets from 10kW to over 3MW, Lectrus also designs the control and monitoring systems for the genset package.
