Solar energy storage is projected to grow significantly in the coming years. Robinson has forged a position as a trusted partner with battery manufacturers, integrators, developers and EPCs in renewable energy storage applications throughout North America. Robinson’s fabrication and integration capabilities are increasingly sought after as they are a perfect fit for the spectrum of solar energy storage projects.
Robinson’s ability to serve as a one-stop shop for battery energy storage, fabrication, integration and volume assembly maximizes our customer’s sourcing efficiencies. With nearly 500,000 square feet of manufacturing space, Robinson offers domestic manufacturing to help take advantage of incentives provided by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Product development is supported with our design for manufacturing (DFM) input, first article manufacturing processes, pre-production analysis, and ultimately high volume manufacturing.
“It is unique that a company would be able to pull together this array of capabilities in one place,” notes Jeff Kroening, director of sales for Robinson. “Other than manufacturing the individual batteries themselves, our team can provide every other skill set involved with building and testing solar energy storage systems.”
Solar energy storage systems require multiple modalities
As a leader in contract manufacturing Robinson brings together multiple skillsets to project execution. We seek to complete nearly all aspects of a project in-house. Engineering support, mechanical design, electrical, HVAC, fire suppression, battery installation, PLC controls, fabrication and assembly are some of our core capabilities. The expertise and experience needed for large solar energy storage projects is all within our Wisconsin facilities. We can also provide appropriate care for batteries awaiting installation.
The prototype phase is an important aspect of solar energy storage development. Robinson collaborates on design services for manufacturability that ensures your system operates as intended before you get too far down the road. We even provide load banks to safely diffuse the power generated during the Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) stage.
“Our team leaves no detail of solar energy storage unaddressed,” Jeff says. “That includes everything from installing temperature sensors inside the custom enclosures to exterior paint that ensures your units will be able to withstand the elements for years to come.”
