Big River to supply steel solar needs

Big River Steel has inked a long-term steel supply agreement with solar power equipment company Array Technologies, Kallanish learns from a company release.

The terms of the deal – both in dollars and in tons – were not disclosed. Big River’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification was a major deciding factor for the agreement. Big River bills itself as the only LEED-certified steel producer in the world.

“Aligning our supply chain with innovative and sustainably minded suppliers ensures that we can provide high-quality and environmentally-conscientious products to our customer as demand grows,” says Array ceo Jim Fusaro.

“I don’t know that I have seen two companies more aligned in their values than Array Technologies and Big River Steel,” says Big River chief commercial officer Keith Shuttlesworth. “In meeting Jim and his team, it soon became obvious both companies are dedicated to implementing technology advances in both our production efforts as well as our commitment to the environment. This is exactly the type of partnership we knew our approach to steelmaking could attract, and we are thrilled to be working with the team at Array Technologies.”
