The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has chosen Go Electric for a new mobile military microgrid project.
The microgrid and energy solution company Go Electric had been awarded a $297,769 contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Construction Energy Research Lab (CERL).
Indiana-based Go Electric will be working on what company leadership is calling a “portable, modular, self-forming microgrid solution for use in harsh mobile applications.”
The device is designed to provide supply-side energy management by integrating multiple energy sources. These include engine-driven generators, renewable energy assets and host-nation/shore power with battery energy storage into a self-forming microgrid.
The microgrid company shared some numbers as well.
“The system will seamlessly integrate, manage and optimize all 50 or 60 Hz AC sources such as commercial and military generators to include AMMPS/DSC synchronizing generators and non-synchronizing TQG generators,” according to Go Electric.
And this isn’t the first time that Go Electric’s AutoLYNC microgrid control technology has been used for military microgrid projects; in fact, this is its fourth military microgrid project.
Indiana-based Go Electric will be working on what the company is calling a ‘portable, modular, self-forming microgrid solution for use in harsh mobile applications.’
“We are leveraging our experience from successful deployments at stationary microgrid projects into a portable, ruggedized solution,” said Lisa Laughner, CEO of Go Electric. “This solution is poised to support not only military facilities world-wide, but will also serve as an energy resiliency solution for disaster relief.”
