The company announced on Monday it planned to open an office in Chandler that will specialize in solar work. The office, to be in the Mammoth Equities Building along the Price Road Corridor, eventually will be home to about 15 employees.
AKO is a Barcelona-based company that works on engineering for heat transfer systems of concentrated solar power plants. Those plants work by focusing the sun’s rays via mirrors onto a transfer fluid, which is then pumped to a generator where it is used to boil water to make steam to run turbines.
