OUR HISTORY AND OUR FUTURE
Solar Pile International Pty Ltd was established in late 2017 specifically to supply all types of piling needs for major Solar Farm projects globally. Solar Pile International (SPI) is a new partnership between Blade Pile Group & BCI Engineering. BPG has over ten years of piling technology and expertise. This coupled with BCI’s extensive experience and proficiency in high scale procurement makes SPI a formidable participant in the field of piling.
BPG commenced in 2007 as a manufacturer, distributor and installer of metal screw piles across Australia. In 2008 the company launched its patented improved screw pile design, the Blade Pile. The subsequent improvements in load capacity; installation accuracy and greatly increased speed of install generated by this improved design are the principal advantages of our system over the conventional screw pile design.
In 2015 BPG successfully won the supply contract for the 70MW Moree Solar Farm in NSW with in excess of 32,000 specifically designed Solar Blade Piles. This was an Australian Federal Government and ARENA funded project. It was at this time that BPG was introduced to BCI Engineering. BPG engaged the services of BCI to procure and supply components for the Moree Solar Farm, which enabled BPG’s local factory to increase supply and deliver the project 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
Brantingham & Carroll International (HK) Ltd (BCI) was established 2006 in the USA, Hong Kong & Mainland China as a global contract manufacturing, engineering and supply chain management company.
BCI specializes in the management of mechanical metals – castings, forgings, fabrications and machined assemblies. BCI began in the power, mining, bulk materials handling and automotive industries. As BCI evolved they moved into the solar and energy storage space, resulting in them becoming the world’s largest contract manufacturer of solar tracking systems (supplied over 10GW’s to date) as well as manufacturing Vanadium Flow Batteries. BCI offers support from design engineering and prototypes all the way through to mass production scaling.
BCI is able to manage extensive product testing under the direction of customers, to ensure adherence to licensing and life cycle performance requirements. This is a vital part of BCI’s commitment. BCI has a team of engineers and project managers who support BCI globally, who are in turn supported by sourcing, supply chain, QA and logistics teams. This reach enables BCI to offer turnkey supply chain solutions for any product line in any part of the world. Specializing in scaling quickly and reacting instantly has meant BCI can ship over 200 containers every week anywhere in the world.
After the successful delivery of the Moree SF, testing for other major project contracts and recognizing the combined strengths of both entities, BPG & BCI decided to come together and form Solar Pile International. With our combined resources and expertise, SPI is now positioned to take on new contracts anywhere in the World with a variety of tailored piling products and systems for any site condition or SF project need, at extremely competitive prices.
SPI is now the total one-stop-shop for site & project specific determinations, engineered & certified pile designs, on site verification testing, manufacture, supply, delivery and supporting QA Documentation.
The SPI supply chain is now unrivalled for the design, manufacture and supply of piles or standard beams. SPI is able to procure over 200 x 40’ shipping containers per week, which equates to an average of 3,000,000 piles per annum, that can support approximately 6,000 Mega Watts of newly built Solar Farms every year.
Contact SPI to start working with us now, so we can show you how to get the best geotechnical and structural foundation solutions out of your SF project, with the highest level of service and quality at the lowest possible cost.
