It’s an honor to partner with industry lead- ing companies like BlueWave and SunEdison to create a first of its kind project like Sullivan’s Ledge. This project turns an otherwise unus- able piece of ground into a site that will provide clean, renewable energy and sig- nificant cost savings to the city of New Bedford,” said Guy Winters , chief operat- ing officer of Pro-Tech Energy Solutions. “The success of the Sul- livan’s Ledge landfill project is a direct result of the collec- tive and collaborative efforts of SunEdison, BlueWave and Pro-Tech,” said Dan Alcombright , vice president of operations of SunEdison, a global leader in PV systems for municipal, federal, state, commercial and utility cus- tomers, and project financing partner. “It is a great honor to receive this award.” “We are proud to receive this award with SunEdison and Pro-Tech,” said Aidan Foley , managing director of BlueWave Capital. “Pro-Tech was an exceptional partner in making this project suc- cessful and the work they performed was of the highest quality and professionalism.” The New Bedford project is part of a series of recent Pro-Tech successes that in- cludes the installation of solar power plants totaling approximately 60 MW over the past 12 months, includ- ing approximately 40 MW in Massachusetts alone.
