Pacing energy transition, Lindsay Precast launches Renewables division

Lindsay Renewables skid mounted solution. The new division will leverage nine Lindsay Precast operations and function as a full service integrator, offering design and prefabrication support through a project’s entire lifecycle.

Ohio-based Lindsay Precast, one of the top operators in non-architectural and underground concrete or steel structures for industrial, electrical, utility, transportation and environmental markets, has formed a new profit center to serve the energy transition. Charter Lindsay Renewables concrete offerings include Battery Energy Storage Systems elements; skid mounted power infrastructure solutions; electric vehicle charging platforms; landfill-grade solar panel ballasts; plus, substation equipment foundations suiting utility and commercial or industrial building site conditions.

“As market demand for our renewables products and expertise continues to grow, consolidating our capabilities in a new division allows us to streamline operations and accommodate future expansion,” says CEO Ron Lindsay. “We’re thrilled to unify the clean energy solutions we’ve built over the decades under the Lindsay Renewables name.” To date, he adds, Lindsay Precast has deployed skid-mounted solutions supporting more than 15 gigawatts of energy capacity, along with ballasts underpinning hundreds of megawatts of solar power infrastructure. 

“As the U.S. moves toward clean energy targets while simultaneously managing aging legacy infrastructure, Lindsay Precast offers highly engineered product solutions,” affirms Lauren Mulholland, founding partner of MiddleGround Capital, which acquired the producer in 2021. “Aligning core capabilities within Lindsay Renewables positions the company for continued growth, and on a larger scale, allows it to provide even greater contributions to the energy needs of the future.”

Ahead of the Lindsay Renewables launch, Lindsay Precast was recognized for participation in a Mount Olive Township, N.J. project named Power Magazine’s Top Renewable Energy Plant of the Year. North America’s largest solar landfill project, the Mount Olive array was selected for its innovative approach and team solutions across design, engineering, construction and finance. Lindsay Precast fabricated steel skids bearing solar panel racks, and shared award honors with developer CEP Renewables, plus partners NJR Clean Energy Ventures, CS Energy, and Terrasmart. 

“This is our seventh project with Lindsay Precast, eighth project with CEP Renewables, and fourteenth landfill solar project with Terrasmart,” says CS Energy Vice President of Operations Janani Ramkumar. “Power Magazine’s Top Renewable Energy Plant of the Year Award is a testament to the strength of our partnerships in delivering high-quality solar assets that yield significant long-term financial and environmental benefits.”
