Bechtel WaaTeeKaa Vision Solar Canopy

Global Engineering, Construction & Project Management company, Bechtel, created this unique solar structure for their historical WaaTeeKaa train with our Vision Module System, in Reston, VA. As part of their 125th anniversary celebrations, WaaTeeKaa has been reimagined, and reopened as Bechtel’s company museum at their headquarters. Visitors can experience interactive exhibits including highlights of past mega projects such as the Hoover Dam and the English Channel Tunnel.
The custom structure was installed by the esteemed team at Prospect Solar, based in Virginia in the “DMV”. Their team was a perfect match for renowned architects, A2 Design, Inc., based out of McLean, VA, and Davis Construction for this project, combining attention to every detail to deliver a stunning, world-class installation.

This striking project features our cutting-edge Vision Module System L-Type, with our full selection of cell layout options. Since its launch, our Vision Module System has proven itself as the most beautiful, versatile and solid architectural solar module system available. The balance between aesthetics and functionality makes Vision the best solution for solar installers and design professionals for the long run!

What is WaaTeeKaa?
