Tech­ni­cal Ope­ra­ti­on and Main­ten­an­ce for three sites in UK

Solar Frontier Europe con­trac­ted green­tech with full scope O&M services in England for three solar farms with a cumu­la­ted capacity of 15 MWp. Green­tech has been chosen as the O&M provider due to their long term expe­ri­ence and pro­fes­sio­na­lism as well as their inde­pen­den­cy. By this decision, Solar Frontier made sure, that their inte­rests are rep­re­sen­ted ade­qua­te­ly and con­se­quent­ly.
Green­tech is respon­si­ble for the ope­ra­ti­ons of the PV-plants and main­tai­ning the high level of safety and per­for­mance. The tasks are as follows:

Scope of Services

  • Moni­to­ring and Repor­ting
  • Inspec­tions and main­ten­an­ce
  • Fault- and per­for­mance analysis
  • Fault inve­t­siga­ti­ons, call-outs and rec­tifi­ca­ti­on
  • Land­s­cape manage­ment

Project results

The plants were grid-connected in March 2016. green­tech has been respon­si­ble for the ope­ra­ti­ons from the begin­ning and sup­por­ted SFE in finis­hing remai­ning works from the EPC stage. Due to the high quality com­pon­ents and con­struc­tion together with short response times and smooth ope­ra­tio­nal pro­ces­ses, the plants achieve highest level of tech­ni­cal avai­la­bi­li­ty and per­for­mance ratio.
green­tech is not only ensuring highest service levels but also creates full trans­pa­ren­cy on their ope­ra­ti­ons. On top of a com­pre­hen­si­ve monthly report, green­tech grants access to the asset manage­ment portal, which contains all relevant tech­ni­cal data as well as the pre­ven­ti­ve and reactive main­ten­an­ce activi­ties. The ope­ra­ti­ons are coor­di­na­ted via a specific tablet app­li­ca­ti­on, deve­lo­ped by green­tech, which increa­ses the effi­ci­en­cy and quality even more.

Customer opinion

» “green­tech took over the O&M respon­si­bi­li­ty right after the com­mis­sio­ning. Espe­ci­al­ly in this complex project phase, green­tech con­vin­ced us with their high degree of com­mit­ment, fle­xi­bi­li­ty and pro­fes­sio­na­li­ty. The result is an optimum in avai­la­bi­li­ty and per­for­mance of our plants. We like the trans­pa­ren­cy which is provided by their IT-systems like the field-app TabTool and the asset manage­ment portal.” «
