Solar monitoring solutions provider meteocontrol and asset management software provider 3megawatt are combining forces to offer more features to their O&M services for large-scale solar PV systems.
The joint service will provide automated import of plant data from meteocontrol’s monitoring systems safer’Sun, VCOM (virtual control room) and SCADA in 3megawatt’s asset management platform BluePoint.
Safer’Sun is software that enables mobile monitoring of solar systems by displaying daily updated data.
Edmee Kelsey, chief executive of 3megawatt, said: “This data integration offers great advantages for our clients. One of the advantages is that clients are able to automatically create energy invoices using solar industry best practice workflows and to verify time of day utility or export PPA statements using ‘shadow billing’.”
A meteocontrol statement said these features save time and allow users to operate large project portfolios with greater efficiency and at lower cost.
Martin Schneider, managing director of meteocontrol, said: “We want to create the highest level of compatibility so that we can provide our customers with the most comprehensive services and have the right solution on hand for every portfolio.”
