FAA Grants RETTEW Exemption for Drones

 

RETTEW is pleased to announce that the FAA has granted an exemption for the use of the firm’s drone (Unmanned Aircraft System) for surveying and mapping purposes. Though RETTEW has owned a drone for roughly a year, the firm was not authorized to use the system commercially until the FAA granted the exemption.

Drones have been a hotly-debated topic over the last few years. Those against drones see them as a violation of their privacy, while those in favor of drones feel their rights are being jeopardized by the government restricting their use. The U.S. Government is very selective when it comes to who it allows to use drones for commercial and recreational purposes. One must register with the FAA to get an exemption for commercial use, like in RETTEW’s case. The FAA has granted only 5,114 UAS exemptions to date.

With the FAA exemption, RETTEW will now be able to use the drone for rooftop surveys, mapping of land areas, as well as inspections of bridges and pipelines. Safety is a priority at RETTEW and using drones will allow the firm to provide reliable data to clients while keeping employees out of harm’s way.

“Keeping up with the latest surveying technology allows RETTEW to build upon the services we offer and pass further cost savings onto our clients,” Mark Lauriello, RETTEW’s President and CEO, said.

RETTEW, ranked on Engineering News-Record’s 2016 list of top design firms, began providing civil engineering and surveying services in 1969. Today RETTEW has more than 350 employees and nine offices located in Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, Mechanicsburg, and Pittsburgh, P.A.; Canton, Ohio; Delhi, N.Y.; Bridgeport, W.V., and Denver, Colo. For more information on any of RETTEW’s services, please call 1-800-RETTEW-5 (1-800-738-8395) or visit www.rettew.com.

Work Begins on Floating Solar Array in New Jersey

Work began this week on one of the largest floating solar arrays in the nation, in the Borough of Sayreville, New Jersey. Along with the project development team, two local educational partners will also participate, providing valuable services to their special needs clients.

 

Partner firms that will execute the project’s design and implementation include:

·         Project developer: Power Grid Capital, LLC based in Congers, New York

·         Project financing:  Monticello Energy Finance, LLC based in New York City

·         Engineer and Designer: RETTEW, based in Lancaster, Pa.

 

The $12 million project will result in the production of more than 4 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy annually for the Bordentown Avenue Water Treatment Plant. Following the design completion, construction is expected to begin in mid-2016 and be completed before the end of the year.

 

The purpose of the project is to produce all of the energy needed to operate the water treatment plant on an annual basis, significantly reducing energy costs and creating a “net zero” facility that does not rely on public utilities. As the solar array becomes operational, the treatment plant’s greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint will be greatly reduced, equivalent to the energy used by more than 375 homes in a year.

 

“We specifically look for renewable energy projects like this,” said Power Grid owner Alan Litt. “It benefits the community far into the future, and also adds significant training resources for community members.”

 

While the solar array will advance the use of renewable energy in the region and lessen the impact on the environment, this project has a further positive effect within the community. Middlesex Regional Educational Service Commission and Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools will work with project managers to engage their students in learning important technical skills, gaining both training and financial opportunity.

 

“We’re not just corporations completing a technical job,” said Jason Wert, senior technical engineer with RETTEW. “We’re in this to help local communities with energy sustainability and make a difference in the lives of families, whether that’s through more efficient energy use or training that will benefit their children years into the future.”

 

Power Grid Capital, LLC is a project developer specializing in the construction of renewable energy projects, including solar arrays and the conversion of biogas from wastewater treatment facilities to vehicle fuel. The company’s principals began their work more than four decades ago in New York, and have a long history of managing the details of project development and construction.

 

Monticello Energy Finance, LLC is a specialty-financing firm whose members have a long history of investing in and managing impact lending projects in the renewable energy market. The company actively seeks project opportunities with RETTEW, such as solar arrays and biogas-to-vehicle fuel. Its mission is to be a leader on the road to renewing and repairing the earth through impact lending. For more information, contact Alan Litt at (646) 844-3601 or visit www.monticello.nyc.

 

RETTEW, ranked on Engineering News-Record’s list of top design firms, began providing civil engineering and surveying services in 1969. Today RETTEW has more than 350 employees and ten offices located in Athens, Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, Mechanicsburg, Pittsburgh and Williamsport, P.A.; Canton, Ohio; Delhi, N.Y.; Bridgeport, W.V., and Denver, Colo. For more information on any of RETTEW’s services, please call 1-800-RETTEW-5 (1-800-738-8395) or visit www.rettew.com.

RETTEW and West Donegal Township Supervisors formally opened the Newville Road Bridge in Elizabethtown on Monday. Representatives from several state and federal legislative offices were present, and Supervisor John Yoder spoke on the significance of the project in the community.

 

The previous steel truss bridge closed in the late 1990s due to structural corrosion. As the bridge carries local traffic over railroad tracks owned and used by Amtrak, RETTEW and the township worked together to prepare the most conducive design for large vehicles on the bridge, fast-moving trains on the tracks below, and the important utility lines on the site. Congressman Joe Pitts assisted with purchasing needed land from Amtrak.

 

The new bridge is a three-span prestressed concrete box beam bridge, featuring a narrow profile to stand between utility lines. The new design is more than 10 feet wider than the previous structure, and construction took place over the past year. RETTEW and Amtrak coordinated with the township and York-based contractor Kinsley Construction to complete all work without interrupting Amtrak’s train schedule.

 

“We’re pleased to open this structure that has been unavailable for several years,” Yoder said. “Traffic heading through and around Elizabethtown can now choose an alternate route, reducing congestion through the main section of the borough.”

 

The $2-million project received funding from the Federal Highway Administration, with the township footing five percent of the bill, or about $100,000. TRC Engineering, based in Lancaster, The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and the Pennsylvania Utility Commission also had roles in the project.

 

“Challenges like this bridge are invigorating for our team of engineers,” said Dave Hoglund, RETTEW project manager. “Coordinating the different permissions, strict design requirements, and the needs of all parties while keeping the end result cost-effective and long-lasting is the type of project we enjoy working through.”

 

RETTEW, ranked on Engineering News-Record’s 2015 list of top design firms, began providing civil engineering and surveying services in 1969. Today RETTEW has more than 350 employees and ten offices located in Athens, Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, Mechanicsburg, Pittsburgh and Williamsport, P.A.; Canton, Ohio; Delhi, N.Y.; Bridgeport, W.V., and Denver, Colo.
