Con­sul­ting for O&M activi­ties for an inter­na­tio­nal PV port­fo­lio


green­tech was com­mis­sio­ned with multiple projects by EGP regar­ding opti­mi­za­ti­on and ope­ra­ti­on of pho­to­vol­taic plants. The PV port­fo­lio of Enel Green Power has grown signi­fi­cant­ly within the last years and EGP builds large scale projects in inter­na­tio­nal markets.

Due to greentech’s expe­ri­ence and know-how regar­ding O&M in pho­to­vol­taics as well as business con­sul­ting, EGP com­mis­sio­ned green­tech with con­sul­ting and ope­ra­ti­ve support.

The fol­lo­wing projects have been realized suc­cess­ful­ly for the Solar com­pe­tence centre and the local O&M depart­ments between July 2015 and october 2016.

Scope of Service

  • Strategy and cost opti­mi­sa­ti­on of local O&M depart­ments, inclu­ding work­shops in 5 coun­tries
  • Inspec­tion of 15 PV-plants in 5 coun­tries with a total output of 104 MW
  • Revision of general com­mis­sio­ning pro­ces­ses
  • Direct support for the com­mis­sio­ning of PV-plants and start of ope­ra­ting 4 plants in Chile with a total output of 415 MW
  • Theo­re­ti­cal and prac­ti­cal trai­nings for the new O&M teams
  • Creation of general plant specific O&M hand­books
  • Support in opti­mi­sa­ti­on of global moni­to­ring and asset manage­ment systems

Project Results

The results of the con­sul­tan­cy projects have been docu­men­ted in detail and have been pre­sen­ted to the manage­ment and the local teams. They build the basis for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of new and opti­mi­zed struc­tures, pro­ces­ses and systems. The results of inspec­tions and com­mis­sio­ning have been pre­sen­ted in a detailed report in com­bi­na­ti­on with recom­men­da­ti­ons for next steps. All O&M hand­books as well as the updated com­mis­sio­ning handbook have been pre­sen­ted and exp­lai­ned to the respec­tive teams. EGP and green­tech cur­r­ent­ly examine further projects to continue the suc­cess­ful part­nership.

The customer’s opinion

» We decided to work with green­tech, because they have been proving their inter­na­tio­nal expe­ri­ence as inde­pen­dent O&M service partner in tech­ni­cal as well as com­mer­ci­al manage­ment of pho­to­vol­taic plants con­ti­nuous­ly in the last years.The high extent of fle­xi­bi­li­ty from stra­te­gic con­sul­ting to direct support on site con­vin­ced us. The well struc­tu­red results and pro­fes­sio­nal pre­sen­ta­ti­on of those helped us to reach our ambi­tio­ned goals. They were sup­por­ti­ve to our stra­te­gic decisi­ons and gave us valuable insights to our daily business. «
