Vegetative maintenance is something solar fields need. Without it, owners are looking at lost production and bigger, timelier problems down the road. With it, owners experience greater yields and fewer emergency service calls. Put simply, vegetative maintenance is a big part of solar O&M. One that is too often overlooked or left on the back burner.

Automation: A Lifeline for Food Processing and Industrial Manufacturing During a Pandemic and Crisis
Note: A version of this blog was published in Food Manufacturing.
The COVID-19 crisis has placed intense pressure on companies as we strive to maintain (and even grow) production amidst possible shutdowns. As the pandemic is teaching us, these challenges require quick solutions. The addition of automation, IIOT and lights-out manufacturing can help companies, individuals and the economy from downtime in a high demand time.
When it comes to feed and flour mills, the old ways of setting up a facility just aren’t cutting it. The industry as a whole is continuing to evolve, and facilities need to evolve along with it. In the milling industry, competition is at an all-time high, and the ability to process more product in less time has never been more important. As the industry continues to evolve, the facilities equipped with the most efficient machinery and capabilities will be the most successful.
From the time we won the Mendota ADM facility job to the final walk-through where we handed the reins back to the client, we didn’t stop. For our team, it was an opportunity to overcome obstacles and grow, as well as a great achievement to work on one of the most innovative flour mills around.
O&M, in regards to Solar Renewable Energy, consists of many services that allow you to optimize an asset’s Return on Investment (ROI). It is a common misconception that O&M services are mainly reactive, instead of preventative. In order to minimize issues that require reactive maintenance, there is a list of solutions that can be provided throughout the life of an asset. When handled correctly, they will prevent those issues from ever happening.
In September 2019, local officials of Mendota, IL joined Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) in the celebration of a new, state-of-the-art flour mill. The result of multiple years and millions of dollars, it is a cutting-edge production facility to provide innovation within its industry and opportunity to the state of Illinois.
When you’re a company that takes on projects of all shapes and sizes, you don’t always know what you’re going to get. Sometimes you get a small, local job that takes a few crew members on the ground. Other times, much larger projects come knocking. And once in a blue moon, you’ll get a shot at one of the largest projects your firm has ever seen. This is starting to happen more often as our reputation grows.
