Indovance Partnered to Develop Solar Panel Project on 314 Acres of Land!

Did you know the energy, the Sun provides for one hour is enough to generate electricity for a complete year globally? However, we are not using even a fraction of it to our benefit. Harnessing solar power can bring in a very significant change to our ecosystem. But all these boils down to just one thing. Who will make it possible?

One of the companies in the USA took up a work of setting up large solar panels on a gigantic area of land. They needed assistance for the project planning and drafting through CAD software where Indovance partnered with them to complete the project in time.

Here is how Indovance helped setting up 3500 Solar Panels on a land as huge as 314 acres!

Client Overview

Our client, a leading solar equipment company based in the USA, deals in installations of solar panels. They were looking for an outsourcing partner to help them in managing all the software related work for solar installation such as Drafting, Proposing Site, Layouts, Contour Mapping, etc. The client liked the project management cycle that we follow and was quick enough to become a long-term business partner so that any sudden spike at work does not make any harm to the ongoing work process and still get the work delivered on time.

Our client was a leading solar equipment company from the USA.

 Client Input

We received data in a pdf format where the existing site conditions, such as property boundary, wetland area and contour levels were shown for quick reference. All the work needed to be done keeping in mind the given inputs in Civil3D software.

Client Requirement

Client wanted us to prepare a Construction Document Set (A set of production drawings). Which will include a Site plan, Grading plan, Layout plan and the Existing site condition plan.

Challenges Observed

Since the project had some very strict standard guidelines and were high on deadlines, we built a team of members who already had expertise and experience in working on such projects. This made us save a huge amount of time on training hours. Also, a backup resources were deployed to accommodate any additional deliverables. Moreover, team had to be abreast with the US construction code and standards.

Indovance Solution Architect

We made all the sheet with the expected details that were required. A total of 3 main files and their multiple sub-files were created for the clarity in understanding and execution of work.

  1. Existing Condition – All existing conditions giving under the civil base plan. This includes all the natural and man-made features already present on-site such as contours, stream, pond, trees etc.
  2. Tree Clearance – Herein, all the unnecessary trees had to be cut to propose solar panels and show proper fence line for security purpose and Calculation of the area.
  3. Layout and Material – Proper site layout need to be done here, by calculating the site distances from all sides according to the standards mentioned and put all the callouts and utility poles wherever necessary.
  4. Grading and Erosion control – Propose contours if needed for a conducive environment. Place the electrical equipment area, utility poles and other solar panel details. Also, propose Stilt fencing for erosion control for not damaging the existing condition.
