International Matex Tank Terminals - Lemont Project

EDI's sister company, Fellowship Energy, is embarking on an exciting project to develop a 234 kW solar energy system for International Matex Tank Terminals (IMTT) located in Lemont, Illinois. This project serves as a proof of concept for the innovative Merlin panel technology and marks the first phase of a larger sustainability program with IMTT. The system will be designed to harness clean and renewable solar energy, reducing IMTT's carbon footprint and contributing to their environmental goals.

System Specifications

The solar energy system at IMTT Lemont will utilize 1570 Merlin Solar FX110 panels and 384 FX160S panels. These panels are renowned for their high efficiency and durability, making them an excellent choice for maximizing energy production. The combination of these panels will generate a total power output of 234 kW, providing a significant renewable energy source for IMTT's operations.

Inverter Technology

To convert the DC power generated by the solar panels into usable AC power, the system will incorporate advanced Chint Power Systems inverters. Specifically, three 60 kW inverters and one 25 kW inverter will be deployed. These inverters play a crucial role in efficiently transforming the solar energy into a suitable form for IMTT's electrical grid, ensuring seamless integration with their existing infrastructure.

Benefits and Sustainability

The implementation of this solar energy system brings forth several benefits for IMTT and the environment. Here are some key advantages:

Reduced Carbon Emissions

Reduced Carbon Emissions: By utilizing clean and renewable solar energy, IMTT will significantly reduce its carbon emissions. This sustainable approach aligns with their commitment to environmental stewardship and demonstrates a proactive effort to combat climate change.


Cost Savings: The solar energy system will enable IMTT to offset a portion of their traditional energy consumption, leading to substantial cost savings in the long run. By generating their own electricity on-site, they can reduce reliance on the grid and potentially even earn revenue through net metering or incentive programs.


Energy Resilience: With their own solar energy system, IMTT gains increased energy independence and resilience. They become less susceptible to power outages and fluctuations in energy prices, ensuring a reliable and stable energy supply for their operations.

Positive Public

Positive Public Image: IMTT's commitment to sustainability through the implementation of renewable energy solutions enhances their reputation as an environmentally conscious organization. This positive image can attract customers, investors, and partners who prioritize sustainability in their business decisions.


Fellowship Energy's development of a 234 kW solar energy system for IMTT Lemont, IL, marks an important milestone in IMTT's sustainability journey. Through the use of cutting-edge Merlin panel technology and Chint Power Systems inverters, this project showcases the potential for clean and renewable energy solutions in industrial settings.

By embracing solar power, IMTT not only reduces their environmental impact but also realizes financial benefits and gains energy resilience.

This collaboration between Fellowship Energy and IMTT paves the way for future phases of their sustainability program, demonstrating their shared commitment to a greener and more sustainable future.
