History

Deltro Electric Ltd., which is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year specializes in design and build electrical jobs with the ability to provide customers with complete engineered and stamped drawings. The Deltro Group of Companies’ ability to successfully complete projects without distance limitations has been proven as we have already begun to supply our expertise in areas outside of Canada with a particular focus on Caribbean nations.

As a company, Deltro’s current specialization is renewable energy and energy storage, but we have also completed design and build electrical work in medical professional buildings, food stores, gyms, federal institutions and shopping centers, where our clients demand the highest quality and will not settle for less. With respect to solar projects, Deltro Electric Ltd. has an established track record of delivering projects on time with unsurpassed quality and seamless efficiency. We have worked together with general constructors and consultants to achieve the best designs and quick solutions.
Deltro Electric Ltd. has completed work on more than 40 photovoltaic rooftop projects in Ontario. We are also working on and have completed several ground mount solar farms ranging from 3 to 50 megawatts per project totaling over 400 megawatts AC to date.

Deltro Group Ltd. continues to expand with regard to its international renewable energy portfolio. We are currently developing projects in all facets of renewable energy including wind and solar across several nations in the Caribbean, Central and South America.

What You Need to Know (Manufacturing Facility)

  • Initial capacity of 90 Megawatts of solar photovoltaic panels per year.
  • Ability to expand production and the manufacturing line to 120 Megawatts per year.
  • Initial start of two shifts and the hiring of over 100 local employees.
  • Retrofit of the Trans-Tech Facility.
  • Solar panel production to be exported throughout the CARICOM, Central and South America.

Evolution

Deltro’s expansion outside of Canada has focused on our efforts in the Barbados where two significant projects are underway:

i) Manufacturing Facility at Kendall Hill.

The first is a the new Deltro Solar photovoltaic manufacturing facility in St. Michael, Barbados. The manufacturing facility will be the first of its kind in the Caribbean, featuring a state-of-the-art Meyer Burger manufacturing line. This facility will support residential and industrial solar development in Barbados and abroad.

Significant progress has been made by Deltro in Barbados regarding the Deltro Solar manufacturing facility. Deltro’s goal is to re-equip the current parts facility at Trans-Tech, Kendall Hill into a manufacturing line for tier 1 solar panels. This state-of-the-art manufacturing line will construct solar panels for sale in the CARICOM and beyond. It will employ well over 200 Bajans and bring one of the largest economic boosts to the island in more than two decades. This state of the art plant received approval, sign off and support from Town and Country Planning. All engineered drawings, reports and site specifications have been signed and sealed by the Barbados Town and Country Chief Town Planner. Deltro is shovel ready and can begin renovation and construction immediately.

ii) 10 Megawatt 70 Acre Solar Farm at Waterford

Deltro Group Ltd. has received recommended approval from Town and Country Planning regarding the 70 acre site in Waterford. The approval includes both megawatts permitted and land use. Deltro is currently working with the Ministry of Housing and Lands for formal land use approvals and a long term lease of the land.

The 10 megawatt solar farm project is part of Barbados overall strategy on becoming energy self sufficient as a country. Deltro’s experience in the renewable energy field makes the partnership between the company and the government of Barbados a very positive and focused one. Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Freundel J. Stuart, Q.C., Prime Minister of Barbados, stated that

“Barbados has set itself several goals..to become the most environmentally advanced green country in Latin America and the Caribbean…”

Barbados Government has set a target of 80 megawatts of renewable energy created within the country to be moved into its power-grid. Self sustainability is the goal for Barbados and The Deltro Group is proud to play a role in partnership with both the government and the people of Barbados. The Deltro Group believes that empowering communities is critical when it comes to sustainability and self-reliance with respect to energy.

Case Studies

Solar Pilot Project

  • Hythe Gardens, Barbados, W.I.
  • Deltro Caribbean first solar installation
  • 2 x 6 kW residential solar PV rooftop systems
  • Utilizes Ying-Li solar panels and Arntuen-solar string inverters

Lessons Learned:

  • Clay roof tiles and exposed interior ceilings required careful planning to ensure racking was drilled through tiles and into ceiling joists below
  • An alternate method of waterproofing was also utilized where support structure was drilled through clay tiles

WINDSOR SOLAR PROJECT

Deltro’s success in the solar industry can be attributed to the values developed during its early years as a small electrical contractor. Proactive problem solving and coming up with innovative solutions was what partners appreciated and learned to trust Deltro for more than twenty five years ago. This mindset has stayed true to Deltro all this time, and now is regularly implemented on every jobsite. Windsor Solar Project, Deltro’s largest ground-mount solar project to date was no exception.

PROJECT SPECIFICS

Constructed in Windsor, Ontario for owner Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. the Windsor Solar Project is 50MW AC and consists of more than 190,000 solar panels. It was the 25th ground-mount solar electrical project completed by Deltro in Ontario in the last five years. “We have become much more efficient, where we used to complete 10MW in approximately six to seven months, we are now able to complete 50MW in the same amount of time” boasts Ashby Singh, Deltro Project Manager for the Windsor Solar Farm. He credits a one month preparation period to the success achieved by the team ” We analyzed every task we had to complete in the project, anticipated possible challenges we could face, and sourced the right tools for the right jobs”. Deltro used machines to aid in completion of their tasks whenever possible because it alleviated the physical strain on workers and in the end made tasks safer for workers and more efficient.
